Barcelona is in a strategic position to strengthen its squad, and reports indicate that the club is willing to take drastic measures to sign Bruno Guimarães from Newcastle. The English club’s elimination from the Champions League has intensified interest in the Brazilian midfielder, and Barcelona is ready to sell its star striker, Robert Lewandowski, to finance the deal.
Newcastle, led by Eddie Howe, suffered a heartbreaking defeat to AC Milan that eliminated them from the Champions League. Although there was a moment of hope with a goal from Joelinton, the final result spelled the end for the English club. The news of Borussia Dortmund’s lead over PSG briefly revived hopes, but the defeat confirmed Newcastle’s exit from European competition.
Bruno Guimarães, the midfielder Barcelona wants
Guimarães’s disappointment with the result has caught Barcelona’s attention, and the club is willing to take bold measures to secure his signature. Reports from Football Transfers indicate that the Catalan club would be willing to sell Lewandowski to finance the transfer of the Brazilian midfielder, whose release clause is estimated at £100 million.
Despite Lewandowski’s recent contract extension to 2028, Barcelona is willing to sacrifice the striker to meet its transfer goals. The situation is expected to develop in the coming weeks, with Barcelona evaluating its options and Newcastle facing crucial decisions about its squad. The possibility of seeing Guimarães at the Camp Nou is in the air, and the potential sale of Lewandowski adds an intriguing twist to the transfer market narrative.
