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, Defensa Central stated that Real Madrid have identified Newcastle United ace Bruno Guimaraes as a target. It has been mentioned that Los Blancos could move in for the Brazilian talent if they fail to land Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guimaraes’ Impressive Run Of Form In English Football This Season

Guimaraes is having a fine campaign at St. James’ Park after putting in a run of impressive performances at the heart of Eddie Howe’s midfield. The Brazilian talent has registered four goals and three assists in 25 matches for the Magpies this season across all fronts.

The 25-year-old has given a good account of himself at the centre of the park based on his average of 2.2 tackles, 1.2 interceptions, 0.6 clearances, 0.8 shots, 1.1 key passes and 1.2 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even accurate when distributing the ball from midfield, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 82.7% in the top tier of English football (stats via whoscored).

Guimaraes is under contract at the Tyneside club until the summer of 2026. Hence, Real Madrid will have to make a sizable offer if they want to recruit him at the end of this campaign.

Is Guimaraes A Decent Option For Real Madrid?

Guimaraes is a solid tackler of the ball and can time his challenges well to secure the ball back for his team at the centre of the park. He doesn’t mind putting his foot through the ball when required and has got the vision to create some decent chances for his teammates in the final third. The Brazil international can strike the ball with power and accuracy from long range and is a decent dribbler with the ball as well.

Guimaraes has got the skillset to be a real star under the expert stewardship of Carlo Ancelotti at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. He is good enough to challenge for a regular starting spot at the Madrid club and could serve as an ideal long-term successor to Luka Modric in the Spanish capital.

Thus, Guimaraes will be a decent option for Los Blancos to pursue when the transfer window reopens at the end of this campaign. He has what it takes to help Real Madrid challenge for some major trophies over the next few years. Thus, Ancelotti would be wise to engineer a move to bring him to Spain as long as he is planning to play him often in the future.
