In a recent report, Tropa Tricolor mentioned that Newcastle United are keeping tabs on Sao Paulo defender Lucas Beraldo. It has been claimed that Newcastle are monitoring the progress of the Brazilian youngster.
Beraldo’s Recent Rise In Brazilian Football
Beraldo has managed to come through the youth ranks of Sao Paulo and has successfully managed to break into their first team this season. The 19-year-old has already made 23 senior appearances for the Brazilian outfit, finding the back of the net once in the process across multiple competitions.
The gifted teenager has caught the eye at times with his performances at the centre of Sao Paulo’s defence. His current contract with the Brazilian club will run out in the summer of 2026. Thus, the Magpies will have to launch a convincing offer if they want to sign Beraldo during this summer transfer window.
Newcastle United Are Keeping Tabs On Beraldo: Is He A Prospect For The Future?
Beraldo can be a solid presence on the defensive end of the field when he is playing his best football on the pitch. He is usually quick to read the danger and can get stuck in with some solid tackles to make life tough for the opposition attackers. Standing at 1.86m, Beraldo can be a dominant presence in the air but has still got a lot of room for improvement in his game.
The Brazilian whizkid doesn’t mind putting his foot through the ball when needed and is a tidy passer of the ball as well from the back.
Newcastle can definitely benefit from signing someone with Beraldo’s potential as he could grow into a future star at St. James’ Park as long as Eddie Howe is willing to be patient with his progress.
At 19, Beraldo is undeniably a prospect to watch out for in the future, so Newcastle United will do well to get him on board later this year. However, it remains to be seen whether he can adapt to the physicality and high intensity of English football if the Magpies manage to snap him up in this off-season.
