Some Newcastle United fans will remember the French revolution that took place at the club in the early 2010s. The Magpies signed a number of players from France, such as Yohan Cabaye, Moussa Sissoko and Mathieu Debuchy.
Well, there’s a possibility we could see a Brazilian revolution very soon on Tyneside.
Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton are both fan favourites at the club. A number of supporters have brought and waved Brazilian flags or banners that celebrate their heritage. The duo were met with a sea of green and yellow after Bruno found the net against Norwich last time out.
It reminds me of 2013 when Newcastle hosted a French day. Many fans turned up waving French flags and themed clothing.
Perhaps this is the beginning of an influx of more Brazilian arrivals on Tyneside. It’s going to be a summer of change at St James’ Park, with plenty of players coming in and going out of the club.
Newcastle could kickstart the Brazilian revolution this summer
Newcastle United have been linked with Lyon’s Lucas Paqueta. He was the teammate of January signing Bruno Guimaraes. The Chronicle claim he would cost them £58million, while Fabrizio Romano has stated that Manchester City are also fans of him as per the ‘Here We Go Podcast‘.
If Paqueta or another exciting Brazilian star was to join this summer it could be the start of a Samba revolution. It would certainly give any potential new signings a boost knowing they have fellow countrymen waiting for them.
Furthermore, seeing how Eddie Howe has improved Joelinton and integrated Guimaraes well into the team, many players will feel they’re in safe hands if they move to Newcastle.
Additionally, the ways the St James’ Park faithful has welcomed all of the new arrivals is astonishing. The flag displays and the atmosphere shows how well you’ll be welcomed by the Toon Army. That’s a universal appeal for anyone – not just players from Brazil.
An exciting summer could be on the cards for Newcastle. We’ll have to wait and see what comes of the possible Brazilian revolution. More samba stars would be nice, but the priority is players that will take the Magpies that next step forward.
