The Lowdown: New offer being prepared
The Brazilian arrived at St. James’ Park back in January where he has since taken the Premier League by storm, and the Magpies are already keen to extend his stay beyond 2026 when his current deal expires.
Football Insider report that the northeast outfit are preparing a club-record contract to tie the 24-year-old down ahead of January, in an offer than could see him earning up to £200k-per-week.
The Latest: Guimaraes update
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones revealed that Guimaraes is enjoying life at Newcastle, making it likely that he will put pen to paper should fresh terms be tabled. He said:
“From what I hear, he’s loving it.
“He’s glad he made the move and I think he probably will extend his stay.”
The Verdict: Fully deserved
Guimaraes has made an excellent start to life in England, and PIF offering him a contract extension would be nothing less than he deserves.
The maestro has made ten goal contributions during his 26 appearances, and already has two goals and the same number of assists under his belt in eight league outings this season (Transfermarkt).
With so long left on his existing deal, the Magpies will be under no pressure to sell regardless of any potential interest, and given the fact that he’s loving life in the black and white stripes, an exit of any kind in the immediate future appears highly unlikely.
