Real Madrid have assembled a formidable squad heading into the 2023/24 season. The roster is filled with world-class talent all throughout. However, even with all the players already in the team, there are still quite a few names being linked with a move to the club as they are clearly in need of some more depth.
A club of Real Madrid’s stature are constantly linked with players. And one name from the recent past has cropped up once again, with his future at Newcastle United seemingly in doubt.
As reported by Shields Gazette, talks to offer Bruno Guimaraes a new deal started towards the back end of last season and appeared to be progressing before stalling. The Brazilian international previously admitted to having ‘a conversation’ with Real Madrid last summer.
Guimaraes has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for quite some time even though those rumours had faded away recently. Could it reemerge in the future if the Brazilian decides to leave Newcastle United?
Real Madrid-linked player’s Newcastle United future in doubt
Real Madrid are believed to have held a long-term interest in the midfielder. He was linked with the club even before he made the move to Newcastle United in January of 2022.
The Brazilian midfielder helped transform Newcastle United last season. The Brazilian guided them to Champions League qualification and a runners-up finish in the League Cup.
Guimaraes can play as both a central midfielder as well as a defensive midfielder. The Brazilian is a dynamic player who can pick out fabulous passes as well as make great forward runs from the middle of the park in order to get into good goal-scoring positions.
However, with the likes of Eduardo Camavinga, Auelien Tchouameni, Jude Bellingham, and Fede Valverde already at Real Madrid, someone like Guimaraes may not have a place in the team.
