Earlier today, reports emerged claiming that Real Madrid and Chelsea were interested in signing Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes after being impressed by his stunning displays over the past ten months.

The 24-year-old joined Newcastle from Olympique Lyon in January earlier this year. One of the biggest investments of the new owners at the time, the Brazilian played a huge role in helping the Magpies survive relegation last season.

He has once again been key to their push as Eddie Howe’s side find themselves in the top four of the Premier League. And the Brazilian’s impressive form has caught the eye of Real Madrid as well as Chelsea.

Los Blancos had their sights set on Guimaraes in the past as well, with the midfielder himself admitting as much. However, it led to nothing as he eventually signed for Newcastle.

But with Toni Kroos’ future far from certain and Luka Modric in the final phase of his career as well, a new midfielder or two could be the need of the hour at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Jude Bellingham remains the absolute priority at Real Madrid. But Guimaraes is also seemingly a name on the club’s agenda.

But as per Chronicle Live, Newcastle United have no intentions whatsoever to sell their star performer and are ready to issue a hands-off warning to both Real Madrid and Chelsea with regard to Guimaraes.

Furthermore, the Tyneside giants are already considering handing the Brazilian a new contract even though they signed him less than a year ago.

There are talks of a £200,000 per week deal, which will make him the highest earner at St James’ Park, where the current ceiling for wages is around £120,000-a-week. However, Newcastle will likely break the structure for Guimaraes given how pivotal he has become and the interest he is attracting.

As iterated earlier, Real Madrid will need at least one midfielder in the summer and Bellingham remains the main target for the Spanish and European champions. As for the interest in Guimaraes, Newcastle will make it extremely difficult for any club to sign him.

Atletico Madrid have no intentions of signing Real Madrid midfielder

Earlier this week, reports emerged claiming that Atletico Madrid had made an approach to Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos, who will become a free agent in the summer.

It was claimed that the Rojiblancos were keen on signing the Spanish international and it was their second approach in recent times as they hoped to convince him to swap sides.

But, as per a fresh report from MARCA, Atletico Madrid have no intentions of signing Ceballos in the summer transfer window.

The report states that the 26-year-old’s profile is not something that appeals to Atletico Madrid, who are looking at a player like Sofyan Amrabat, in case they do wish to reinforce their midfield department.

Indeed, the report suggests that Diego Simeone is very happy with his set of midfielders as he has Koke, Marcos Llorente, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Pablo Barrios, Thomas Lemar, Rodrigo De Paul and Axel Witsel.

So, as things stand, Atletico Madrid are not looking to sign Ceballos. As for the midfielder, he is said to have offers from several important clubs across Europe heading into the summer. But, the Spanish international continues to prioritise staying at Real Madrid.

Ceballos is not seeking a major improvement on his salary either and just wants to be a prominent part of the team at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, that cannot be guaranteed if both Toni Kroos and Luka Modric also renew their contracts, especially with Real Madrid pushing to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund.

So, an exit could be the most likely outcome for Ceballos, but it seems like he will not be crossing the divide and signing for Atletico Madrid.
