Newcastle Engages in Discussions to Prolong Guimaraes Contract
According to renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano, Newcastle United are on the verge of finalizing a contract extension with Bruno Guimaraes. The club is currently engaged in negotiations with the player to officially announce his renewal at the earliest opportunity.
Newcastle United are patiently awaiting the commencement of the Champions League, following their successful squad reinforcement during the summer transfer window. At present, the focus is on securing contract renewals.
The English side is eager to extend Bruno Guimaraes’ existing contract as swiftly as possible in order to ward off potential suitors who may attempt to lure him away. Journalist Fabrizio Romano reports that the Brazilian midfielder will soon commit to an extended deal, accompanied by a salary raise. The formal agreement is expected to be signed within the next few days. Bruno’s current contract was set to expire in June 2026. Negotiations between the involved parties have been ongoing for several days and have already progressed to an advanced stage.
The 25-year-old has already appeared in 61 competitive matches for Newcastle United, contributing 10 goals and six assists. Notably, he has only received one red card, which occurred during the Carabao Cup semi-finals against Southampton.
Newcastle United will face formidable opponents in the Champions League, including AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, and Borussia Dortmund.
