As far as bad news goes, this season has hardly relented in providing negativity to Newcastle United fans, so it stands to reason that this will continue into the transfer window.

Ailments have not been the only major impediment to Newcastle’s progress this season; Financial Fair Play or Profit and Sustainability, whatever they call it these days, has restricted Newcastle’s capacity to fill the gaps left by these long-term ailments.

Although those restrictions are scheduled to alter at the end of the season, Newcastle’s spending power will most likely be insufficient to address the issues that have emerged this season.

With two defenders out for the rest of the year, the Magpies’ entire transfer strategy will most certainly shift, as more players will need to be brought in this summer.

Fabrizio Romano says Newcastle may have to sell Bruno Guimaraes

If Newcastle has to spend more, they will need to raise more revenue, which is why Fabrizio Romano believes Newcastle may consider sacrificing Bruno Guimaraes to free up a larger spending budget.

The Brazilian midfielder, who joined from Lyon for £40 million in January 2022, is one of the club’s most popular and important players; however, he recently signed a new contract that includes a £100 million release clause that could be activated this summer, according to Romano in his Daily Briefing.

“It’s also a possibility for Newcastle to sell one big star this summer too.

“It will depend on the final verdict about Financial Fair Play but it’s a possibility, from what I’m told.

“Newcastle would love to keep all their stars but some of them, like Bruno Guimaraes, have a release clause, so it’s gonna be time to follow those ones in the summer.

“I’m sure they want to add also some players to their squad in different positions, so it’s not only about the outgoings.”

Bruno can’t make it any more clear that he’s happy at Newcastle

Bruno Guimaraes makes Newcastle United claim

 

Bruno being linked with a move away is nothing new; new stories emerge every day indicating that some team or another is chasing him.

We are still convinced that we will get another season out of the Brazilian. He enjoys life here and has often stated so, and we believe he will decline any offers presented during the summer.

However, if the club needs to sell him, the story will alter. Let’s just hope we can find some bargains and keep the players that will propel us ahead, rather than having to sacrifice them in order to bring in quantity over quality.
