PSG wants Brazilian Bruno Guimaraes, 115 million clause

The Newcastle player impressed Parisian coach Luis Enrique in the Champions League double-header

Luis Enrique and PSG have identified Brazilian Bruno Guimarães as their January reinforcement in midfield. The Newcastle player impressed the Parisian coach in the Champions League double-header. In the middle of the pitch Luis Enrique needs a flexible player with only the Uruguayan Manuel Ugarte as the pivot. For this reason, as stated by ESPN Brazil, PSG would have immediately started the surveys for the 26-year-old Brazilian midfielder on the orders of the Asturian coach.

It is the number one objective, after having formalized the arrival of the young Brazilian central defender Lucas Beraldo and the unofficial one (confirmed by the president of Corinthians himself, his home club) of the defensive midfielder Gabriel Moscardo. As far as Guimaraes is concerned, however, there would be ‘two obstacles’ in the Parisian team’s way. The first is the 100 million pound (around 115 million euro) clause inserted by the Magpies. The second is the rivalry of the clubs of Saudi Arabia and Qatar over the player.

PSG, however, by paying the clause, would not have any surprises, in case there was approval of the midfielder of the Brazil national team and of Spanish nationality, who arrived at Newcastle from Olympique Lyon on 30 January 2022 in exchange for 42 million euros. Since then, together with Pope, Trippier, Isak and Joelinton, he has become a fundamental piece of the team led by Eddie Howe and one of the leading midfielders on the European scene. In 85 games he scored eleven goals and distributed nine assists.
