A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, ESPN mentioned that Real Madrid are still showing interest in Newcastle United ace Bruno Guimaraes. It has been claimed that Los Blancos are hoping to acquire the services of the Brazilian talent next year.

Guimaraes’ Impressive Form At St. James’ Park

Guimaraes has enjoyed a decent run of form for the Magpies this season as he has produced a run of consistent displays at the heart of Eddie Howe’s midfield. The Brazil international has featured in 17 matches for the Tyneside outfit during this campaign, scoring three goals and providing a couple of assists across all competitions.

The 25-year-old has given a good account of himself at the centre of the park based on his average of 2.6 tackles, 1.3 interceptions, 0.6 clearances, 0.8 shots, 1.3 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even been accurate when distributing possession from midfield after completing 83.1% of his attempted passes in the English top flight (stats via whoscored).

His current contract at Newcastle United is set to expire in the summer of 2026. Hence, Los Blancos will have to make a big offer if they want to lure the Brazilian sensation to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium next year.

Is Guimaraes A Dream Option For Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti?

Guimaraes is a solid tackler of the ball and can read the danger well to secure the ball back for his team in the middle of the pitch. He can clear the danger when his teammates are in danger at the back. The Brazilian midfield ace has got the vision to create some inviting chances for his teammates in the final third and also strike the ball with venom and precision from long range. He is primarily a defensive midfielder but can also operate as a box-to-box midfielder if asked to do so.

Guimaraes is good enough to serve as an ideal successor to Luka Modric who is in the final stage of his playing career at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. We can expect the Brazil international to bring plenty of quality to Carlo Ancelotti‘s midfield department as long as he makes a smooth transition to life in Spain.

Guimaraes has what it takes to make an instant impact at Real Madrid and could help them challenge for multiple trophies over the next few seasons. Thus, he will be a dream option for Los Blancos to consider this January or at the end of this campaign.
