Liverpool eyeing £98m Bruno Guimaraes deal in three instalments

Liverpool

Liverpool is reportedly considering a major move to secure the services of Newcastle United’s Bruno Guimaraes. They are planning a unique payment plan across three years for his nearly £100m release clause. The Reds are enjoying a short break before their upcoming clash with Bournemouth in the Premier League. However, behind the scenes, transfer talks are in progress.

The Magpies’ midfielder, Bruno Guimaraes, has caught Liverpool’s attention. The Reds are exploring the possibility of a deal that’ll see them pay his release clause in three annual instalments. The Brazilian, who has impressed since joining Newcastle, is famous for his box-to-box energy and tenacity on the field.

Despite being a coveted target, securing Guimaraes won’t be easy, as his current club is reluctant to let him go. Guimaraes himself committed his future to Newcastle by signing five-year deal in October after helping Newcastle secure Champions League qualification.

Liverpool’s unique approach to signing Guimaraes

The reported release clause of £98m is structured in three £32m instalments, making the deal a unique one in the world of football transfers. This could be a crucial factor for Liverpool, who face competition from top clubs like Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, and Chelsea if Newcastle decides to part ways with Guimaraes due to financial reasons.

At 26 years old, Guimaraes is in his prime, and Liverpool legend Alan Shearer has praised his abilities. Liverpool’s midfield boasts considerable talent. Guimaraes, while not a traditional No.6, could bring an elite-level dynamic to the team. He has showcased his contribution with three assists in the league this season. Moreover, maintaining an average of 2.2 tackles per game highlights his impact on the field.

The Reds must navigate through potential challenges to secure Guimaraes’ signature, with the midfielder being a key player identified by the Newcastle board to help with financial matters. As the transfer window unfolds, Liverpool fans eagerly await whether this mouthwatering proposition becomes a reality for their club.
