“Pep Guardiola Faces Shock Setback: Man City Star Bruno Guimaraes ‘Offered’ to Roma!”

Newcastle Dig In Their Heels: Guimaraes Not for Sale Despite Deadline Looming

Newcastle United are drawing a battle line in the sand – Bruno Guimaraes is untouchable. Despite Premier League spending restrictions looming and rumors swirling about potential player sales, the Magpies refuse to budge on their star midfielder.

Manager Eddie Howe has made his stance clear: he’ll do whatever it takes to keep his key players at St. James’ Park. This comes amidst reports that the club is nearing limitations on their spending, potentially forcing them to offload some talent. Guimaraes, linked with Manchester City and Arsenal in the past, seems to be off the chopping block entirely.

His hefty £100m release clause may have expired on Monday, but Newcastle remains confident they can hold onto the Brazilian. His contract runs until 2028, giving them significant leverage. Reports suggest interest from City, but Guimaraes is apparently not on their “must-sell” list for Newcastle.

Meanwhile, across the Premier League landscape, Kalvin Phillips’ future seems far less secure. His agents have reportedly been busy shopping him around, with Roma emerging as a potential destination. This comes after a disastrous loan spell at West Ham significantly tarnished his reputation.

Starting only three times for the Hammers and receiving a red card against Nottingham Forest, Phillips’ stock has fallen considerably. While Roma boss Daniele De Rossi is a known admirer, concerns about Phillips’ fitness remain. Pep Guardiola’s infamous “overweight” comment following Phillips’ return from the World Cup still casts a shadow, despite his later apology.

Will Newcastle hold firm on Guimaraes, or will the pressure to comply with financial regulations force their hand? And will Phillips find a new home in Rome, or will his fitness concerns continue to be a sticking point? The summer transfer window is full of surprises, and these two situations are sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats.
