Barcelona, Real Madrid Edge PSG in the Race to Land Newcastle Sensation

Newcastle United’s Bruno Guimarães is reportedly one summer target that Paris Saint-Germain has in mind to bolster their midfield position for next season. However, one report reveals they face a major hurdle. 

Guimarães boasts a €115 million release clause that isn’t a wild figure. As a result, PSG must activate it or approach that amount to secure the coveted midfielder. Nonetheless, the Brazilian might not be keen on a return to Ligue 1.

TuttoMercatoWeb reports (h/t Le10Sport) that the 26-year-old midfielder asked his agents to find a solution to join FC Barcelona or Real Madrid, two clubs that have already expressed interest.

In January, a report revealed PSG manager Luis Enrique’s fascination with Guimarães, placing the Brazilian midfielder at the forefront of the 53-year-old’s plans to bolster the midfield.

If PSG cannot lure the Newcastle star to Paris, it could be a major blow to the Parisians. CBS Sports’ Jonathan Johnson notes that Guimarães could be a missing piece to the squad as PSG builds a team post-Kylian Mbappé.
