Newcastle extended the contract with the most expensive player by setting a high release clause


Newcastle United have announced the contract extension of their best and most expensive player, Bruno Guimaraes, who has signed until 2028.

The 25-year-old Brazilian midfielder is happy with the deal, which can only be terminated if someone activates his £100m (€115m) release clause.

Guimaraes came to Newcastle in January 2022 from Lyon for €42 million.

“I’m happy! The fans accepted me from day one and showed me how much they love me. I am very happy here”, said Guimaraes.


The midfielder has made 14 appearances for the Brazilian national team since arriving in Europe in 2020.

Transfermarkt has placed the player’s market value at around 70 million euros, as much as Swedish striker Alexander Isak, making them the club’s most valuable players.
