Newcastle United transfers: This month, Bruno Guimaraes has been connected with a move away from Newcastle United.

Despite suggestions that PSG and Liverpool are interested in signing Bruno Guimaraes, Fabrizio Romano believes the Brazilian will not leave St James’ Park this month. Guimaraes has been a standout for Newcastle since joining from Lyon two years ago, and he has established himself as one of Eddie Howe’s important players.

This form, however, has fueled conjecture over his future on Tyneside, with some of Europe’s most powerful teams interested in his services. Despite this talk, Romano believes Guimaraes will not leave Newcastle this month, however he has not ruled out a move in the summer.

“Despite rumours, nothing is clear now on Bruno Guimaraes,” Romano told Caught Offside. Bruno has not decided to move, no price has been agreed upon, and all reports about Spanish clubs have not been confirmed simply because the moment for decisions is not now. Bruno is supposed to stay in January, and then we’ll see what happens in the coming months.”

Romano’s accusations come amid new speculation over Guimaraes’ contract’s release clause. The midfielder signed a new five-year contract extension with Newcastle United in October, but the deal included a release clause worth more than £100 million.

Newcastle will be helpless to resist offers for the 26-year-old if the release clause is triggered. According to recent Spanish rumors, a buying club will only have to pay roughly £33 million upfront to sign Guimaraes, with the remainder of the transfer fee paid in three installments.

While Newcastle United will be very reluctant to see Guimaraes leave the club this month or in January, CEO Darren Eales recently revealed that the club will have to trade players, and potentially lose a star player, in order to stay within PSG (Profit and Sustainability Regulations) FFP (Financial Fair Play) constraints while also strengthening the first-team squad in other areas.

When asked if the club could lose someone like Guimaraes in the near future, Eales responded, “It’s difficult to speculate, but if we’re offered £1 billion for one of those players, no one could argue that makes sense.” Any decision we make will always be made with the club’s medium to long-term benefit in mind.

“It’s difficult to speak specifically about specific players, but I can say that in order to get to where we want to go, it’s sometimes necessary to trade your players.” Whether it’s because of the player’s contract duration, the offer is too good to pass up, or you need to reload in specific areas, trading that player could make sense.

“It is counter-intuitive and part of the inherent system of PSR that there is an incentive to trade your players if you want to re-invest, by the nature of the boundaries.”

When asked if every player at the club is valued, Eales responded, “Correct.”

Newcastle United has emphasized the importance of adhering to both FFP and PSR in order to avoid any point deductions.
