Newcastle United transfer news: Magpies linked with £80m Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United

Barcelona have reportedly entered the race to sign Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes after failing to land Bernardo Silva from Manchester City.

That’s according The Sun who claim that the Catalan club are keen on the 24-year-old Brazil international midfielder after a string of top-class performances in the Premier League for the Magpies.

Barcelona have tried to sign playmaker Silva on several occasions but were unsuccessful owing to the £80million price tag slapped on him by Manchester City. Guimaraes cost Newcastle United £35million last January and has seen his value skyrocket after netting seven goals in 27 games from midfield.
