Bruno Guimaraes has a clause in his new contract at Newcastle United that would allow him to join Barcelona for a fee of 65-70m euros.

But Spanish media outlet SPORT claims that the new contract includes a special clause, that would allow the Brazilian midfielder to move to the Catalans for a fee believed to be around 65-70 million euros.

Guimaraes has not been shy about his admiration for Barcelona, often hinting at his desire to play there. While the odds seem challenging now, due to Barcelona’s financial situation, the football world is full of surprises.
