Newcastle Make Ambitious Move For Brazilian Midfielder As Frustrations Mount – Report



After suggestions of progress on multiple fronts yesterday, today has been an altogether different story. There have been multiple reports claiming that Newcastle’s long pursuit of Sevilla’s Diego Carlos has come to an unceremonious end.

Sevilla will not budge from their high valuation of the 28-year-old forcing Newcastle to scramble for alternative targets. Sky Sports is reporting that Carlos has rejected Sevilla’s conciliatory offer of a new contract. It appears the player is not pleased with being denied this move.

Newcastle have money to spend and there are reports of parallel moves for Liverpool’s Nat Phillips and Sassuolo’s left-back Rogerio, an alternative to Robin Gosens. Newcastle are seeking an initial loan for Phillips while Rogerio would command around £15m.


That leaves more money for other areas. Sport Witness is citing a claim from France’s L’Equipe that Newcastle have made an initial approach for Lyon defensive midfielder Bruno Guimaraes. The 24-year-old is currently away on international duty with Brazil.

Guimaraes joined Lyon from Brazil’s Athletico in the winter window of 2020 for around £15m. This report claims Newcastle have made an offer of £34m and would quadruple the midfielder’s wages.

Sport Witness also cited a report from Brazil’s Globo Esporto that Lyon have accepted the offer and it is down to the player to agree to the move.

There could be nothing in these claims though Eddie Howe appears to covet an additional midfielder. It was reported yesterday the club have increased efforts to sign Aaron Ramsey from Juventus.

With money not being dished out on the likes of Sven Botman or Diego Carlos, maybe an ambitious move to add to the midfield has now been given the green light.

Interestingly, Guimaraes’s representatives are Bertolucci Sports, who pushed extremely hard to win a move to Newcastle for Diego Carlos. They have refused to comment on the latest link to one of their clients

Guimaraes has been strongly linked with Arsenal in this window. He said the following about The Gunners’ interest in him a few weeks ago:

“Arsenal approached my agent, but there was no offer. My aim, and I made it clear to Juninho, is to win a title with Lyon.

“The fans have not had one for a long time. We have the Coupe de France, the Europa League, and the league.

“It is difficult with the level that PSG are at, but anything can happen.

“My aim is to win a title here, but I have never hidden my desire to play in the Premier League.”

    Newcastle have offered him £65k a week, ‘considerably more than what he earns at Lyon’ with the possibility of reaching £95k a week due to incentives in his contract. Player camp says offer is too good to turn down

    On Bruno Guimarães, my understanding is that there has been no formal offer or approach to Lyon from Arsenal. Newcastle’s interest is concrete and things are progressing quickly.

    The loan move for Philips would be because he’d be surplus to requirements should we stay up.

    It’s two completely different positions mate.

    They both have the same agent so I’m not giving up on Carlos or Botman just yet

    TBH it’s not the end of the world if we don’t sign a CH aslong as we beef the midfield up
    Schar and Fede with Lascelles and Krafth as back up can see us ok if we get a goal Scorer like Zapata and Lingard in

    Brazilians are usually technically sound and English players have grit and know what’s needed in this league. It’s a good mix.

    “WARNING TAKE WITH A PINCH OF SALT”

    Deli Ali Hasn’t progressed

    Ramsey doesn’t look great as Eddie doesn’t want to unsettle the the dressing room by bringing in players on 300k a week
    Unless Juv pay part of his wage

    Lingard desperate to come
    Can’t come or talk to Nufc until Man U green light the deal
    Everyone’s on stand by to go
    Easy deal to make
    Man U willing to accept a loan fee there trying to agree a price emails back and forward on this one

    Carlos deal isn’t off
    It’s simple
    Personal terms aren’t the issue
    Seville have moved the goal posts many times
    But 35m GBP will get him
    Club playing cat and mouse
    Seville will most probably cave as the player wants the move

    Been linked with Brazilian full-back Rogerio for 2 seasons, we still have interest
    In the player, there agents are pushing for the deal 12m

    Once again Ousmane Dembele’s agents have contacted Nufc to say the player is available but like I’ve mentioned previously they don’t want un rest in the changing room as the player wage is ridiculous

    Club want two centre halfs Domestic names now being mentioned

    Adam Webster
    Nat Philips
    Malang Sarr

    Be patient don’t write off any deals as clubs will scramble the last few days inc
    Ali, Carlos & Botman
    Players like Origi Abua could also leave in the last few days

    Niklas Sule wants 200k a week, we can get him on loan then free in the summer
    Nufc undecided as they will have to commit

    Atalanta have rejected our offer for Duvan Zapata £8m loan with an obligation to buy for another £30m including bonuses if we survive

    For those wondering how good Guimaraes is, he is absolutely quality

    Had him in my FM team and he’s like Tiote/Shelvey mixed into one but with that extra Brazilian flair

    This is about as pointless as bidding 70p for Lewendowski and Barry Bannan as a double deal. Never going to happen.

    Also if we’re not getting pounded all the time through 30%possession the defence won’t be under too much stress and manquillo is underrated at LB its all on getting the midfield right to play with more possession
