Bruno Guimaraes of Newcastle United has been linked with a big-money move to Paris Saint-Germain, but the Brazil international has delivered a timely word of appreciation to the club’s fans for their support.

Bruno Guimaraes has thanked Newcastle United fans for giving him ‘a lot of confidence’ and praised manager Eddie Howe for pushing him to a new ‘level’.

Bruno has been a huge hit at St James’ Park since leaving Lyon in the Champions League two years ago for an instant relegation battle with Newcastle. At his unveiling, Bruno boasted about ‘believing in the concept’ and how the goal was ‘to be in the Champions League’. Surprisingly, Newcastle finished in the top four the next season for the first time in more than two decades.

Bruno’s contribution to that transition was undoubtedly acknowledged, both internally and internationally, and Newcastle signed the midfielder to a new five-year contract in October. The deal is said to include a £100 million release clause, and PSG is the latest club to express interest this month. Bruno, on the other hand, has made his home on Tyneside and has formed a special link with the club’s followers.

“They’ve been incredible with me, my wife, my father, my mother, with everyone,” he told the Premier League. “Every time, they sing my name. This boosts my confidence to play and be myself. To be honest, I was surprised by the reaction of the crowd. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone.”

Bruno, who was eased into English football at first, has since become one of the first names on the team sheet under Howe, who reaffirmed last week that Newcastle intended to keep the 26-year-old for ‘as long as possible’.

“He’s very special to me,” remarked Bruno. “I was at this [lower hand] level when they signed me.” It’s because of him that I’m here [raises hand]. He helped not only me, but the entire team.”
