Paris Saint-Germain wants to bolster their midfield after Gabriel Moscardo’s injury. The capital club has a few weeks to secure a midfielder, and their target is Newcastle United’s Bruno Guimaraes.
Furthermore, ESPN Brasil reports that the Ligue 1 side might bypass negotiating with the Premier League club. According to the report, Guimaraes has a €115 million release clause. As a result, PSG might have to trigger that amount or pay near that cost for the Magpies’ star.
The Brazilian defender is a priority for the French giants and a target that Paris’ decision-makers have been monitoring for some time. Moreover, his potential arrival would mark the third Brazilian player to join this January.

The probable stumbling block could revolve around the cost. As a result, it could prompt PSG to carefully consider whether to proceed, especially if they are required to meet the release clause. Nevertheless, they could be on the verge of acquiring a player familiar with Ligue 1, having previously played for Olympique Lyonnais before switching to the English side.
