Newcastle United have had a shaky start to the 2023/24 season, but it appears that they have at least been able to lock down the future of a vital player in Bruno Guimaraes.
Newcastle United Agree New Contract For Bruno Guimaraes
Details of New Bruno Guimaraes Contract
Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Newcastle United have agreed a new contract for Bruno Guimaraes and ensured that he will be with them for seasons to come. He says that “it’s done” and that the Brazilian midfielder has agreed on a new five-year deal that will run up until June 2028.
The journalist also mentions a “key detail” has been added to the contract. This is a new release clause in the region of £100 million. This is something rather unique and probably included to ensure that nobody can take away the midfielder from the Magpies for cheap anytime soon.
Romano claims that Bruno is “so happy” to extend his deal with the club, and this agreement seems to have been finalised. It appears that he will be staying at St. James Park for a few more years and help them win trophies.
What Has Guimaraes Achieved at Newcastle So Far?
After arriving from Olympique Lyonnais last year, the 25-year-old has become a vital part of Eddie Howe’s side. He played a major role in helping his side finish in the top-4 in the Premier League last season, scoring four goals and providing five assists in the Premier League.
Guimaraes, previously hailed as “magnificent” by Alan Shearer last year, has already made 63 appearances for the Magpies and scored ten goals in that period. The 25-year-old has helped his side control games from a deeper midfield role. He has also shown his goal-scoring skills, increasing his importance to Newcastle.
