Real Madrid Eyes Newcastle Superstar as Top Alternative to £130m Transfer Target
Real Madrid are reportedly considering a move for Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes if they fail to secure the signing of Jude Bellingham this summer.
According to sources at Defensa Central , the Spanish giants are keen to bring in a long-term central midfielder, with the Borussia Dortmund star currently their top priority. However, with an asking price of £130m, Bellingham may prove to be too expensive even for a club of Madrid’s stature.
As such, the Brazilian international has emerged as a viable alternative for the reigning UEFA Champions League holders. Guimaraes has been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu ever since he arrived at St James’ Park last summer.
Guimaraes has been one of Newcastle’s standout performers this season, helping the Magpies reach the League Cup final and currently sitting fifth in the Premier League standings. His impressive displays have not gone unnoticed, with Real Madrid closely monitoring his progress.
While Guimaraes would be a more affordable option compared to Bellingham, it remains to be seen whether Newcastle would be willing to part with their prized asset. The Brazilian midfielder is considered a key player for Eddie Howe’s long-term vision for the club, and his departure could have a significant impact on the team’s plans going forward.
Nevertheless, with Newcastle United being one of the most exciting clubs in Europe at present, big things could be on the horizon for the Magpies in the upcoming transfer window. If Real Madrid come knocking for Guimaraes, it remains to be seen whether the club would be able to resist the lure of the Spanish giants.
Real Madrid are on a mission to rebuild their midfield for the future, and Guimaraes has been identified as a key target. It will be interesting to see how this transfer saga unfolds over the summer and whether the Brazilian midfielder ends up swapping the black and white stripes of Newcastle United for the famous white jersey of Real Madrid.
