‘I think’: Bruno Guimaraes delivers his verdict on whether Newcastle should try to sign Cristiano Ronaldo

Bruno Guimaraes has now delivered his verdict on whether Newcastle United should try to sign Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo

There have been doubts over Ronaldo’s future at United since the summer and it has only intensified over the past week. 

The Portuguese star has given an interview to Piers Morgan where he has discussed his current frustrations at Old Trafford. 

Ronaldo has cut a frustrated figure in Manchester this season as he has seen his game time reduced massively under Erik Ten Hag. 

And with doubts surrounding his future, Guimaraes has spoken about the possibility of Newcastle signing a star like Ronaldo.

Guimaraes on Ronaldo 

The Brazilian feels it would not benefit Newcastle to sign the biggest stars right now, even with their new-found wealth. 

“The way I agreed to come to the club was also something remarkable,” he told UOL

“Today anyone wants to come to Newcastle, the richest team in the world, but I arrived with the team doing bad, pointed out as virtually relegated. 

“Trippier and I were the first to believe in the project, so fans have a special affection. 

“I think Newcastle need players with that mentality, it’s not about signing everyone just because they have money. It’s not bringing Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Mbappé. It’s not like this.”

Newcastle have been incredibly smart in terms of their business under their new owners so far. They haven’t overspent to bring in stars and have made astute signings that have improved Eddie Howe’s squad. 

The Magpies are flying high at the moment and are sitting third in the Premier League table. 

Howe is building a brilliant side at St James’ Park and there is now a togetherness that hasn’t been there for quite some time. 

There hasn’t been any concrete links between Newcastle and Ronaldo, but Guimaraes is right by saying they shouldn’t sign big names unless they fit into Howe’s plans.
