Real Madrid reportedly still interested in signing Bruno Guimaraes from Newcastle United, according to recent report by ESPN.
Bruno Guimaraes has been a standout player for Newcastle United this season, consistently performing at a high level in the heart of Eddie Howe’s midfield. The Brazilian international has made 17 appearances for the Tyneside club in all competitions so far, contributing three goals and a couple of assists to the team’s efforts.
Bruno Guimaraes has impressed in the Premier League with an average of 2.6 tackles, 1.3 interceptions, and 0.6 clearances per 90 minutes, as well as 0.8 shots, 1.3 key passes, and 0.8 dribbles. He has also shown accuracy in distributing possession, completing 83.1% of his attempted passes in the top English league (stats via whoscored).
With his contract at Newcastle United set to expire in 2026, Real Madrid will need to make a significant offer to bring Brazilian sensation Bruno Guimaraes to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium next year.
Could Bruno Guimaraes be a dream option for Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti?
Bruno Guimaraes is a strong tackler and able to anticipate danger to win the ball back for his team in midfield. He is also able to clear danger when his teammates are under pressure at the back.
With excellent vision, he creates scoring chances for his teammates in the final third and can also strike the ball with power and accuracy from long range. He primarily plays as a defensive midfielder, but can also play as a box-to-box midfielder if needed.
“Bruno Guimaraes is talented enough to be a suitable replacement for Luka Modric, who is nearing the end of his playing career at Real Madrid. If he can adapt well to life in Spain, he has the potential to significantly improve Real Madrid’s midfield under Carlo Ancelotti.
Guimaraes has the ability to make an immediate impact at the club and could help them compete for multiple trophies in the coming seasons. Therefore, he would be an ideal option for Real Madrid to consider either in the January transfer window or at the end of the current season.
