Bruno Guimaraes on his start at Lyon
Since the time it was acquired by the Arab Owners, it can be affirmed that the fate of Newcastle United will ‘change its life’.
Not only the Premier League, but Chich Che’s fans can fully expect the home team to develop into a real force in Europe.
But before dreaming of prestigious titles, Newcastle need to win the relegation ticket this season. Therefore, they quickly fired coach Steve Bruce and put their trust in coach Eddie Howe.
Of course, no matter how talented, Howe still needs more quality rookies to help Newcastle avoid the prospect of playing football in the Championship.
Opening with Kieran Trippier, Newcastle recruited a total of 5 rookies in the last transfer window with a total value of more than 100 million euros.
Among them, Bruno Guimaraes is the most expensive deal with a value of 42.1 million euros. In addition, they also have to beat Arsenal to get the signature of this star.
Obviously, there must be a reason why Newcastle decided to make Bruno the second most expensive rookie in the club’s history. And the figures from William Hill show that the former Lyon star really has a superior level compared to the players of Chich Che.
Specifically, when compared with his teammates at St. James’ Park, Bruno is the leading player in a number of statistics such as: number of passes, number of successful duels, number of times helping the team regain control of the ball.
Besides, no Newcastle player has created more good chances than Bruno, along with the number of passes, tackles and interceptions.
With what has been shown in this season, Bruno is certainly receiving extremely strong expectations from the new team.
