Newcastle star Bruno Guimaraes opens up on his future amid Chelsea and Real Madrid transfer links


Bruno Guimaraes says he ‘wants to become a Newcastle legend’ amid reports linking him with a move to Chelsea or Real Madrid. The star midfielder has had a brilliant impact since signing for the Magpies back in January for £40million, with his form drawing many admirers.

While Newcastle, currently fifth in the Premier League, have serious ambitions thanks to their Saudi-backed owners, there is speculation that Guimaraes could leave for top club having previously subbed Arsenal. But while Chelsea are keen to sign him as soon as possible, the 24-year-old has no plans to leave St. James Park, telling Sky Sports:

‘I feel at home. The experience I’ve had here has been amazing. ‘Yes, sometimes it can be difficult to leave the house because everybody recognises me! But they [the fans] are always so friendly, so loving, not just with me but with everyone in my family.

‘It’s always nice when there are teams looking at you, but my plan is just to do my best at Newcastle. The rest, I leave with my agent. ‘I have three or four years of contract left. It’s so long. I swear I’m not thinking about other things. My focus now is just on Newcastle and the World Cup. ‘There is a long way to go. I love playing here, I love to bond with the fans, and I want to become a legend here.’

Guimaraes’ form ought to more than earn him a place in Brazil’s squad for Qatar 2022, with the player blessed with great offensive and defensive capabilities. Since his full Premier League debut, Guimaraes ranks second among all players for tackles, successful duels and fouls won, as well as third for dribbles completed and fourth for through-balls.

‘But I think I was born to play in the Premier League,’ he added. ‘I love the atmosphere. I love the intensity of the game. It is the most difficult league, of course. There are no easy games. ‘But when you play well here, it makes you think you can play in any competition. I think that, and the pressure when I came, has helped me to develop, to be the player I am now.’
