Real Madrid will have to break transfer record to sign Bruno Guimaraes

Real Madrid might have to break the bank in a bid to land Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes.

As per Chronicle Live, Real Madrid’s interest in Bruno Guimaraes might force them to sanction a record deal. The Newcastle United midfielder has lit up the Premier League since his arrival, and there have been numerous enquiries over his availability.

Bruno Guimaraes has made a difference since joining Newcastle in January, and his progress has been pretty monumental. He was one of the catalysts as the Magpies saved the blushes of a potential relegation last season and finished in an unexpected 11th position.

The Brazilian international has grown in bigger stature since last season and is expected to be in the World Cup-bound Selecao squad. Eddie Howe insisted he wanted to build his team around the 24-year-old and feels the player does have a very bright future at St James’ Park.

The £40 million Newcastle United paid to Lyon might sound like a bargain given his influence for the Tynesiders. He also has a pretty lengthy contract till 2026 which will protect his value to some extent.

But Real Madrid have had a history of poaching players from all over the world, and this could be another case. Real Madrid brought in Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga as potential successors to Toni Kross and Luka Modric. But Modric’s potential retirement next season could create a large void in the side, and Carlo Ancelotti wants Los Blancos to go all out for Newcastle’s prized asset.

Real Madrid splashed a whopping £103 million million to lure Eden Hazard from Chelsea. And they might have to add a substantial premium on top of that to land Bruno Guimaraes.

Bruno is aware he might have to take a further step for his career growth, and donning the Real Madrid jersey might just be the push he needs. But Newcastle have the upper hand in the current situation and will demand a steep fee to sanction a potential departure.

Bruno’s performance in the upcoming World Cup might help the club by adding some extra million to the transfer fee. But for his part, he is admittedly happy at Newcastle United and will unlikely agitate for a move to Real Madrid or some other club anytime soon.
