Bruno Guimaraes has signed a two-year contract extension with Newcastle United, securing his future at the club.
Bruno Guimaraes has agreed to a new contract extension with Newcastle until June 2028. The Brazilian’s new contract has a £100 million release clause.
The deal agreement is ‘completely sealed’ and’verified,’ claims transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, and an official announcement will soon be made.
The Brazilian has also openly stated that he is ‘staying’ with his celebration after scoring in last month’s 8-0 triumph against Sheffield United, which included kissing the Newcastle club symbol on his shirt.
Guimaraes’ agents have been in contract negotiations with Newcastle since the conclusion of last season, and they have now achieved an agreement. The Brazilian signed to a £40 million contract when he joined The Magpies from Lyon in January 2022.
Guimaraes has drawn Premier League interest from Chelsea and Liverpool, and he even claimed to having a “conversation” with Real Madrid last summer when the La Liga giants sought midfield reinforcements after losing Casemiro to Manchester United.
Prior to Newcastle’s Champions League encounter against Paris Saint-Germain at St. James’ Park, the club plans to announce the new contract.
It will be Newcastle’s first Champions League encounter at St James’ Park in more than two decades.
Eddie Howe’s team drew their first group stage match 0-0 at AC Milan last month, with Guimaraes playing the entire game. The 25-year-old is likely to start against PSG on Wednesday (8 p.m. kick-off).
