Bruno Guimarães is reportedly on Paris Saint-Germain’s radar, although conflicting reports suggest he might not be. Nonetheless, it would cost a significant sum if the capital club were to pursue the Newcastle United midfielder.
If manager Eddie Howe’s comments are to be taken seriously, the only way for the French giants to land the Brazilian is to trigger the release clause of €115 million.
“When you talk about your best players, you want to keep them at the club as long as possible, and that’s certainly our goal,” Howe told reporters (h/t Foot Mercato).
On Thursday, initial reports unveiled Guimarães as their primary choice to strengthen the midfield. However, subsequent information surfaced, suggesting that PSG did not have the Brazilian on their radar.
Then, additional information emerged on Friday, further connecting the French giants to Guimarães. Nonetheless, any movement should only happen in the final stretch of the transfer window, the last days of January.
Guimarães’ camp and Newcastle are waiting for PSG to make a move to start talks. Additionally, the Brazilian midfielder is at the top of the list for manager Luis Enrique to strengthen the midfield.
