OL demand bigger check from Newcastle for Bruno Guimarães


Strongly courted by the Magpies, will the Brazilian midfielder leave Les Gones this winter? OL would like a bigger check, which would not affect the confidence of the English in this case.

In today’s edition, Progress make no mistake about it. Yes, Olympique Lyonnais needs a check for €40 million to oxygenate its finances. But if the man supposed to bring in so much is called Bruno Guimarães (24 years old), it will be messy. Installed in a very uncomfortable position, the Rhone club knows that the possibility of the sale of its Brazilian environment is likely to make a lot of talk if it happens.

Engaged in a fierce battle to grab the podium, Peter Bosz has not really expected to see the Brazilian leave in the middle of the season. For their part, the Lyon supporters, already very scalded by certain decisions of the club, do not want to hear of a goodbye from the month of January. And yet, the reality is likely to hurt a lot.

OL raise the stakes

Yesterday, while several media announced that OL had accepted Newcastle’s €40m offer for Guimarães, the Giones published a press release to deny any agreement. Except that OL, in order to its press release, does not really indicate that it opposes a sale. He simply invites his fans to trust the information “officially released by the club”. Not enough to put an end to the file therefore. Especially since the player would have informed his agents that he was OK to go to Tyneside in the event of an agreement between the two teams. And this deal just seems delayed.

The Times affirms in fact that Newcastle remain confident in this file. With its press release, OL only wanted to send a message to the Toons: the offer will have to be higher. Will the Magpies agree to revise their proposal upwards? When we know that the English club signed Burnley striker Chris Wood for €30 million, it is not illogical to see OL claiming more than €40 million for a Brazilian international player who has already played in the Champions League. .
