Real Madrid battle Chelsea in the race for 24-year-old Brazilian midfielder who has been a superb form this season

Bruno Guimaraes has proven to be an excellent investment for Newcastle United over the past ten months. Since joining the club in January, the Brazilian has become a midfield lynchpin for the club and his performances this season have been critical in helping the Magpies break into Premier League’s top four this season.

Guimaraes’ performances have not gone unnoticed either, with a report from Evening Standard indicating that both Real Madrid and Chelsea are interested in his services,

Real Madrid are currently in the market for a new midfielder, who can ideally join the club at the end of the season. This is because both Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are out of contract in 2023. Although the club are exploring the possibility of new deals, nothing has been agreed upon just yet.

As such, the club actively scouring the market, with Guimaraes emerging as one of the top options. However, luring the Brazilian away from Newcastle will not be easy as their cash-rich owners are not keen on offloading their star player in the near future.

Guimaraes, after all, has been the heart of the Newcastle United midfield, with the club even reportedly in talks over a new deal that could see him earn over £200,000 per week.

This means the Brazilian international is expected to cost a fortune, potentially ruling Real Madrid out of the chase, as they have Jude Bellingham as their top priority for the summer.

The report does suggest Chelsea share a close relationship with the Newcastle United owners. But they are also treading carefully and it appears very unlikely that Guimaraes would leave the club anytime soon.

However, we have witnessed many twists and turns in the transfer market lately, and with both Chelsea and Real Madrid interested in his services, it will be interesting to see what Guimaraes thinks of a potential move away from Tyneside.
