The latest Liverpool transfer news is that Liverpool's pursuit of Newcastle midfielder Bruno Guimaraes has taken an intriguing turn as reports suggest a groundbreaking deal. The Reds could potentially secure the Brazilian star for a manageable £32million-per-season over the next three years.
This revelation comes amid Newcastle's financial challenges, making Guimaraes a potential asset in the transfer market.
Bruno Guimaraes has been on Jurgen Klopp’s radar for the past year, with the player impressing at St James' Park. Despite signing a new five-year contract in October, recent financial troubles at Newcastle might force them to rethink their options. The Magpies' reported losses of £73.4million raise the possibility of selling key assets like Guimaraes to stabilize their financial situation.
Spanish outlet AS reports, as per The Mirror, Guimaraes has 'agreed' to a release clause in his contract, set at £98million, payable in three instalments of £32million each. This development puts Liverpool in a favorable position, offering them a strategic advantage in the race for the midfielder's signature.
It is believed the Newcastle board have selected the Brazilian star to help them ‘settle accounts’ and there are no restrictions on Premier League teams activating his exit valuation.
Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, and Chelsea are also closely monitoring the 26-year-old, recognizing his potential as a midfield powerhouse. The release clause structure not only makes the deal financially viable for Liverpool but also adds an element of flexibility.
The financial challenges faced by Newcastle, combined with Guimaraes' impressive performances, make him a sought-after asset during this transfer window. Liverpool's shrewd move to secure him in a staggered payment plan could be a game-changer, providing Jurgen Klopp's squad with a formidable midfield addition.
Liverpool's approach, backed by Fenway Sports Group [FSG], showcases their commitment to strengthening an already impressive squad. The £32million-per-season deal might just be the key factor in the Brazilian playmaker arriving at Anfield. The competition to secure the signature of Guimaraes will surely intensify in the upcoming weeks.
