Zapping But! Football Club Olympique Lyonnais: The question of the week
Although OL have categorically denied the fact that they would have accepted an offer of €40m from Newcastle for Bruno Guimaraes, this does not prevent the two clubs from continuing to negotiate. According to L’Equipe, Lyon would not be firmly opposed to a sale but is discussing additional bonuses on the file.
An XXL contract offered to Guimaraes
As for the player, who left for Brazil in January, he gave his approval to his agents to negotiate with the Magpies. If Bruno Guimaraes, who is happy in Lyon, will not force his departure, the midfielder still has in mind to play in the Premier League in his career. Newcastle would offer him the possibility of quadrupling his current salary (€220,000 gross per month) but Bruno Guimaraes is also not against the idea of waiting a few more months, eager to finish the season well in France and in Europe with OL before imagining joining a club in a better situation than the Magpies (18th in the Premier League). Aware of the interests of Arsenal and Juventus of Turin, Bruno Guimaraes believes that an offer of this ilk can return to the table in June.
A Brazil-Newcastle flight booked for next week?
On the British side, we nevertheless remain confident on the issue. The Daily Express assures in particular that, despite the recent refusals from Lyon, Newcastle and the Brazilian’s agents have already booked a flight to the North of England for next week…
