Newcastle United have contacted Barcelona for a blockbuster player swap: Bruno Guimarães for Raphinha and €30 million.
This is information that comes from Jijantes, led by popular reporter Gerard Romero.
The report was clear to say that a proposal is being discussed, but that there was still “a lot left” before an actual deal was struck.
The news has generated some confusion as Guimarães is a key player for Newcastle and it would be unusual for a team to be offering up a key player in a swap.
In addition, Barcelona still has to clear out salaries if they want to register new players, nevermind players who would be bought for a fee.
Two possible exits mentioned by Jijantes were Clément Lenglet and Ez Abde.
