Klopp and Liverpool told Brazilian International will cost ‘in excess of £100 million’ to sign
Bruno Guimaraes who has been tentatively linked with a move to Liverpool in recent weeks, is set to sign a new contract at Newcastle United.
Guimaraes joined Newcastle in a £40m deal from Lyon in January 2022 and didn’t take long to make an impact at the heart of Eddie Howe’s midfield.
He is now considered to be one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and a man that is valued very highly, with some of the games biggest clubs interested in a potential deal.
Newcastle have no intention of selling their star man in the coming windows, but that has not stopped speculation in the media that LIVERPOOL and Real Madrid are all eyeing up a sneaky move in the January window or at the end of the season.
Now – it is claimed that his new deal at St James’ Park could have a release clause in the excess of £100 million inserted into it, according to Ben Jacobs.
He said: ‘It is possible that there will be a release clause inserted into the new deal. That’s maybe the most interesting part of all of this because, if you’re Newcastle and there is a release clause, you’re going to inform that release clause based on Declan Rice and Moises Caicedo.
‘It’s going to be a very high number, well in excess of £100million.
‘If you’re the player, you may want that release clause because it gives you an out if Newcastle, for example, don’t get Champions League football.
‘But the Guimaraes camp will have to decide whether it’s better to have a giant release clause or no release clause in terms of potentially being open to a move in the long-term.’
Right now, Newcastle can offer Guimaraes the football that he wants, Champions League football and the dream to help the club do something special in the game. But if they cannot carry on heading upwards, he may consider his future.
LIVERPOOL will keep an eye on his situation at the club – they cant do much more than that right now.
