It has been suggested that Chavi Hernandez (43-Spain) could pull out the ‘swap deal’ card as he looks to strengthen the center of his squad. It has been reported that Hapinha, 26, who has been relegated to a backup role in the team, could be sold to Newcastle in exchange for Bruno Guimarães (25-Newcastle).레모나토토 주소
Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reported on Saturday (July 16), “One of the options that Barcelona’s management is thinking about is Brazilian Guimarães. “Guimarães would be a good fit for Barcelona and could provide a physical advantage in the middle of the park,” said a source. “At the moment, Barcelona could afford to add him. With Newcastle asking for €100 million, the inclusion of the player could make the transfer cheaper.”
Barcelona, who are third in the Primera Liga (La Liga) this season, are monitoring several players for the upcoming transfer window. Despite not having a lot of financial wiggle room due to their ongoing investments, they are constantly on the move to bolster their squad. After signing Ilkay Gundogan, 33, last summer and keeping their main midfielders, Barcelona are looking for a new midfielder.
One of their targets is Newcastle’s ace, Guimarães. Since joining Newcastle in the winter of 2022, Guimarães has been an absolute force in the midfield. Not only does he have the vision and passing ability to lead the attack, but he also has the work ethic to keep the defense in check.
Newcastle signed him to a new contract last month, tying him to the club until 2028, in a bid to keep him, who had previously been linked with big clubs such as Arsenal, Real Madrid and Barcelona. However, the signing of the new deal was followed by reports that Guimarães had inserted a Barcelona transfer clause. This is a buyout clause that allows Barcelona to offer a certain amount of money for the player, which Newcastle cannot refuse.
It’s a very favorable clause for Barcelona, but they could consider a swap deal to lower the transfer fee even slightly. Newcastle are interested in signing Hapinha, who has lost his place at Barcelona. He has lost his place on the right flank to Ramin Yamal, 16, due to injuries and poor form this season.
According to Mundo Deportivo, “Having dropped out of Xavi’s starting XI after injury, Hafinha is a player Newcastle have always wanted and could help them sign Guimarães. We’ll have to wait and see how the season ends.” Currently, Chelsea are also interested in signing Hafinha, meaning that Newcastle cannot avoid a battle for his signature.
In addition to Guimarães, Barcelona have also added Martin Subiemendi (24-Real Sociedad) and Ederson (24-Atalanta) to their list of targets for the summer of 2024, according to the outlet. Barcelona’s transfer department is working with urgency as they look to go beyond the La Liga title and reclaim the UEFA Champions League (UCL) crown.
