Newcastle Increase Offer For Playmaker As Agreement Inches Closer – Report



After reports emerged earlier that Newcastle had reached an agreement in principle for Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes, there is news coming out of France that an improved offer has now been tabled.

This comes from L’Equipe, who was one of the outlets to suggest a deal was already close to being reached for €40m. They are now reporting that Newcastle have upped the stakes with an offer of €42m plus an additional €10m in bonuses.

So it’s hard to gauge exactly where Newcastle stand in this pursuit with so many countering claims. However, L’Equipe feels an offer of this size could be the one that seals the deal for the 24-year-old.

The original report claimed a deal was agreed for the size of the fee but not the structure of Newcastle’s payments. This could be a case of Newcastle wanting to keep the five-year payment plan in place and are raising the overall offer to placate the cash-strapped French club.

Guimaraes is currently in Ecuador as Brazil prepares for tonight’s World Cup qualifier. Newcastle have verbally agreed to quadruple the playmaker’s wages and can formally start that process once an agreement with Lyon is reached.

Hopefully, this latest offer and whatever structure it holds will be accepted with little resistance. There are less than five days remaining in this window and Newcastle need some breakthroughs which have been hard to come by this month.

    This new offer should push the deal through and with personal terms already agreed it should move fast. He plays tonight for Brazil and then tomorrow I imagine he will head for a medical.

    Still won’t sign him. We’ll end up with Phillip Billing and Dan Burn instead of Guimaraes and Carlos.

    Rumour has it the offer has been adjusted to give them more cash up front instead on 5 equal payments.

    They can’t afford to buy a replacement with 1/5th of whatever the fee is.

    Reports have come out that reporters are reporting reports that report on reported stories that other reporters have reported and reporters don’t know what they are reporting on with the reports they are reporting.

    One reporter said. I love reporting on reports and reporting reports is my life and need to every day report on reported stories that need reporting.

    Asked if reporting was true and accurate the reporter, reportedly disappeared in a reported puff of smoke.

    That’s until we get told later tonight that we’ve yet to agree personal terms, his medical is actually Sunday and Lyon haven’t accepted an offer yet obviously 😉

    Newcastle are understood to have agreed terms on a new deal with 19-year-old midfielder Joe White, who has been attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs ahead of the expiry of his contract. #nufc

    Newcastle are still in talks with OL for Bruno Guimarães. Direct meeting again today about payment terms and bonuses to be discussed between clubs. Flag of Brazil #NUFC

    It’s up to Newcastle to pay what OL want now, as Brazilian midfielder’s still keen on the move.

    Yen,
    On the enigma that is a -1, nobody knows where they come from or when the next one might appear, they’re as rare as hens teeth. You should ask Munster Mag as so far he has about six of them 😀

    “This could be a case of Newcastle wanting to keep the five-year payment plan in place and are raising the overall offer to placate the cash-strapped French club.”

    Sounds very very possible, part of the negotiation. It’s only right to increase the fees, if Newcastle wants to keep the original installment plan.

    I wouldn’t say so. They’ve gone after quality players. Always going to be hard to convince players to join. Teams don’t want to sell or trying to sell for way over value. We won’t buy for the sake of it and won’t be taken for mugs over prices. I think the owners/buying team are being very sensible and done well so far.

    Frustrating yes. But done things correctly in my view.
