Newcastle United have been warned that they must consider selling one of their marquee players in order to undertake a thorough team revamp.

Newcastle’s owners are keen to spend some of their enormous fortune in the club, but they are unable to do so due to the Premier League’s stringent FFP rules.

According to a fresh report from inews, the Magpies may have to consider selling someone like Bruno Guimaraes, who would bring in a large amount that they could then reinvest back into the team.

Newcastle would suffer a significant loss if Bruno were to go.

It goes without saying that Bruno is critical to the way Newcastle plays under Eddie Howe, and the club will struggle to find another player like him.

His strongest abilities are his ability to withstand pressure, find space in tight situations, and maintain the ball under pressure, which few midfielders offer in the globe, let alone the league.

Although it is highly upsetting, fans understand that the club will have to remove players at some point because the deadwood in the team isn’t going to bring in big money to allow them to spend.

But, since entering two years ago, Bruno has become something of a cult icon in the North East, and it’s heartbreaking to watch someone go not only when they’re a brilliant player, but also when there’s a strong connection between him and the supporters.

Newcastle is on the verge of exceeding their FFP limit.

According to the article, the club believes they have reached their transfer spending ceiling, having spent roughly £300 million since the takeover was completed.

This means they’re looking closely at what commercial arrangements they can strike to supplement the funding, but even that won’t be enough.

In the end, whether it’s Bruno or another sellable asset like Alexander Isak or Sven Botman, it’ll come down to who is prepared to pay what for either of them.
