Newcastle United tell Bruno Guimaraes he won’t be sold this summer

Arsenal and Manchester City have faced a setback in their pursuit of Bruno Guimaraes as Newcastle United have informed the Brazilian he won’t be sold this summer.

According to a report from TBR Football, Newcastle United have informed Bruno Guimaraes through his agent that the club won’t negotiate the departure of the Brazilian midfielder. They have no intentions of parting ways with him despite interest from rivals Arsenal and Manchester City.

Guimaraes was one of the club’s biggest moves following their takeover. The Brazilian arrived at the club in the winter of 2022 from Lyon and has only gone from strength to strength since. The midfielder played a key role in helping them qualify for the Champions League last time out.

While he surely did his bit during the 2023/24 campaign, the Magpies have failed to qualify for European football. With no European football for next season and the club struggling to balance their books, the future of quite a few of their stars has been up in the air. Guimaraes is one of the players who has attracted a lot of attention on the back of his impressive performances.

Arsenal, Manchester City interested in Bruno Guimaraes

Arsenal and Manchester City are two English clubs keen on his signature. The Gunners want to further bolster their midfield in the summer as they look to finally win the Premier League, having challenged Manchester City right until the end over the last two seasons.

Arteta wants someone who can form a dependable partnership with Declan Rice, and they feel Guimaraes will be the ideal fit. As far as Manchester City are concerned, they seek more depth in the centre of the park. The English champions want to have someone who can cover for Rodri and also start alongside. The Brazilian star could be a great signing for them in the short as well as long run.

Newcastle United do not want to sell Bruno Guimaraes

While both clubs are keen on his signature, Newcastle United have no intentions of negotiating his departure. Given his importance to Eddie Howe’s team, the club have informed his agents that they won’t entertain any offers for his services.

The only way out for interested clubs is to trigger the £100 million release clause in his new contract that was penned down last year. The clause is only active until the end of June which means interested clubs do not have much time. Meanwhile, the Magpies seem confident of keeping the 26-year-old in their squad.
