As it should be expected, there are some Newcastle transfer news emerging which links our best players to moves away from the club. It is often the case from the reactionary media to cash in on a big side's poor form by claiming their best players want to leave. Nine times out of ten, those player sales don't happen, but should Newcastle be wary of losing Bruno Guimaraes?

It seems like a stretch since Bruno is our best player, but it could be on the hierarchy's mind that he is their most profitable asset. After all, FFP is breathing down our necks, so who's to say that the board are not in favour of selling Bruno Guimaraes to recuperate some losses and free up some spending room as we approach the second half of the January transfer window?

Newcastle transfer news: Catalan outlet claims Bruno Guimaraes wants to leave Howe

According to Sport, Newcastle should worry about losing Bruno Guimaraes, since the Brazilian midfielder wants to leave. With his agent in Paris at the moment, there is a possibility that he could be discussing Bruno's potential move to PSG (albeit, this isn't the main reason for his trip).

As excellent pointed out by Sport Witness, though, the fact that Sport (the original source) is a Catalan outlet shouldn't be overlooked. After all, it could be "sour grapes" from the Catalan outlet, since Barcelona can't afford to pay his release clause and despite their best efforts to include players as part of the deal, Newcastle won't have any of it.

It's well documented that Barcelona are in an awful position financially, so it's a good observation by Sport Witness and I do believe that the media may have its own intentions to derail this transfer by publishing nonsense (which is often the case in January, anyway).
