Three £32m payments possible…Liverpool, PSG and Chelsea in a battle for Bruno Guimarães

Three £32m payments possible...Liverpool, PSG and Chelsea in a battle for Bruno Guimarães Transfers

Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimarães joined Newcastle United from Olympique Lyon in the winter of 2022.He has the physicality to withstand the intensity of the Premier League and his excellent passing sense allows him to build attacks from the depths of midfield, while continuing to create chances in front of goal.

Last season, the northern English club finished third in the domestic league, but this season has seen a string of injuries and a poor run of results. With the Champions League and even the Europa League in jeopardy, and rumours of a breach of financial fair play, it has been suggested that the club may release some of its key players in the transfer market this summer.

Along with Swedish international Alexander Isak, a number of clubs are interested in the 26-year-old defensive midfielder. Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Barcelona may once again be in the market, with speculation that they are looking to further strengthen their midfield, reports AS.

In addition, it is said that a release clause of around £98 million is in place, but instead of a lump sum payment, three payments of £32 million could trigger the release clause.

Liverpool’s previous mainstays left the team last summer with the signings of Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Wataru Endo.

The squad underwent a major shake-up midway through the season, putting them in a position to challenge for the quadruple crown, and they were in contention for the Premier League lead right up to the final stages of the season.

Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones developed into regulars, while youngsters such as Stefan Bajcetic and James McConnell emerged. Tyler Morton has also made rapid progress on loan, so in terms of numbers they have the right squad.

However, it’s a long and difficult season, so it’s not a bad idea to have a lot of good midfielders. So will Liverpool pay a total of £98 million to bring the Brazilian midfielder to Anfield…?
