Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe is sure that he can sell Bruno Guimaraes a dream ticket to St James’ Park.
Newcastle United’s Bruno Guimaraes received an emotional message from supporters urging him to resist the temptation to join Manchester City or Paris St. Germain this summer.

Fans held up flags stating “Bruno don’t leave” and “please stay a Magpie” before of the 5-1 win over Sheffield United, while a larger banner display read: “From Alianca and Rio to Newcastle upon Tyne, a home away from home, Joelinton and Bruno, our Brazilian Geordies.”

As Bruno departed the stadium on Saturday night to meet his family, lingering fans in the Milburn Stand chanted “Remain at Newcastle” as they enjoyed some post-game hospitality. And Bruno does not need to be told how much he is desired at St James’ Park ahead of a month of unrelenting speculation about his next move.

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe will be happy to just direct him until the end of June, when his release clause will have expired and United will be able to demand anything they want for his signature, if the alleged bids from Manchester City or PSG materialise.

Howe stated over the weekend, “He (Bruno) is very much part of my plans! We need to show him what we can provide as a club. I hope that’s enough to keep him. I hope he stays with us for many years.”

Bruno himself hinted at a successful conclusion to the summer window in terms of sticking on. “The fans have given me so much,” he remarked on NUFC TV. “I’ve never felt so loved.”

If anyone is doubting Bruno’s intentions, with rumors of a summer departure circulating on the agent circuit, the man himself informed Newcastle fans only last autumn. After signing a contract that would carry him until 2028, he stated, “I’m quite happy here. It’s a really comfortable place to be, and I hope to keep making the fans happy and helping the team succeed. That is my desire, because there are no words to express how delighted I am to be here.”

Reading between the lines in previous interviews with Guimaraes, it appears that the 26-year-old established a minimal bar for qualifying for Europe. If Newcastle does that, as they approach qualifying for the Europa Conference League, the month of June will pass by, and the narrative, with Howe claiming to create a side “around” Bruno, will shift once more.
