Bruno Guimarães’ chances of leaving Newcastle United are today highlighted by the Brazilian media.

Outlet Globo Esporte points out that while many players may use the Copa America as a showcase to get a summer move, the midfielder is actually living the opposite situation, as he has a release clause at the Magpies which expires on the same day that Brazil play their first game in the tournament: June 24th.

That means there’s less than two weeks left for clubs to sign him from Newcastle for £100m. And even though there are three specific clubs who are interested in signing him, none of them are actually close to doing it.

Barcelona ‘sought information’ about the transfer and stepped back when realising they can’t afford him, so they’re seen as an ‘unlikely destination’. Paris Saint Germain, meanwhile, are expected to ‘intensify contacts’ closer to the release clause’s deadline. There’s also a chase from Manchester City, who made an approach but still didn’t make a move.

Globo Esporte points out that Newcastle’s FFP issues are ‘playing in favour’ of Bruno’s exit, as the club need a big sale before the end of June. So that’s a situation which could get intense in the coming weeks.

Whenever Bruno Guimarães is asked himself, he only lets everyone knows how much he loves Newcastle United.
