Newcastle United could have a problem on their hands, with Bruno Guimaraes the subject of interest from Real Madrid.

Bruno has been a target for Real Madrid since the summer, and recent reports have suggested that Los Blancos are still keen on the Newcastle superstar.

When Casemiro joined Manchester United last year, it was claimed in Spain that Real Madrid were looking at Bruno as a possible replacement. AS reported that Newcastle would want double their money for the 25-year-old, meaning he would cost more than £80million.

Now the Magpies are looking to hand Bruno a new contract, with talks already beginning over an extension. That is what the fans want, although there is a slight fear that he could leave if we don’t qualify for the Champions League given the admiring glances from Real Madrid.

However, the club are seemingly not concerned.

Newcastle are relaxed about Real Madrid wanting to sign Bruno Guimaraes

According to i News, Newcastle United are relaxed about Bruno’s future at the club despite interest from Real Madrid. And they feel the same about Sven Botman, who is apparently a summer target for Paris Saint-Germain.

The fact that Newcastle are relaxed about the Bruno situation is encouraging, and proves they have confidence in Bruno’s belief in the Toon project.

The midfielder has recently reaffirmed his desire to be at St James’ Park long term. Whenever he speaks to the media, he talks about a bright future at Newcastle United and being part of PIF’s project.

While he is clearly a Champions League calibre player, Bruno appears to understand that Newcastle aren’t going to get there overnight. He has patience, but believes that the Magpies will get there in the near future.

Newcastle have no plans to let Bruno go to Real and are keen for him to sign a new contract, just over a year after joining the club. It has previously been claimed that he could become Newcastle’s highest paid player ever.

The fact Real Madrid are keen might scare some fans, but it should be considered a compliment. We have someone so good that Real Madrid think he could play for them.

Luckily, Bruno is ours, and Newcastle are very relaxed about his future on Tyneside.
