Barcelona would have to spend around €100 million in order to sign the 25-year-old midfielder this summer. The Brazilian international has established himself as a key player for Newcastle since joining the club and it seems highly unlikely that the Magpies will sanction his departure anytime soon.
They have no reason to cash in on the 25-year-old central midfielder this summer. It is no secret that Barcelona will have to improve their squad during the summer transfer window and Bruno Guimaraes could prove to be a quality acquisition for them. The Spanish outfit won the league title this year but they were quite poor in the European competitions.
They must look to improve the squad in order to do well in the Champions League next season. Although Guimaraes is a different sort of player compared to Busquets, he could prove to be a quality acquisition for the Spanish club. Meanwhile, Barcelona are going through financial limitations and it will be interesting to see if they can afford €100 million for the Newcastle midfielder.
The report from the Times claims that Newcastle are confident that Guimaraes would opt to stay at the club beyond this season. The opportunity to play for a club like Barcelona will be an attractive proposition for the player but Newcastle have managed to secure Champions League qualification and it seems unlikely that the Brazilian will force a move away from the club. It is fair to assume that Bruno Guimaraes is likely to continue with Newcastle United for now and a move to Barcelona will have to wait.
