Since its takeover by Saudi investors two years ago, Newcastle United has become the richest club in the world. Thanks to this money, the Magpies were able to attract big names and regain their former standing in the English Premier League. Among the club’s star recruits is the Brazilian Bruno Guimaraes, who arrived from Lyon last January for nearly 50 million euros. According to a study carried out by the English media The Athletic, it is precisely Bruno Guimaraes who ranks as the player whose jersey sells the most at Newcastle.
More sales than the biggest stars of the Premier League
This revelation shows all the admiration the midfielder arouses among Magpies supporters. Since his debut, the Brazilian has quickly established himself as a key element in their coach Eddie Howe’s system. Thanks to his silky technique, his vision of the game and his physical prowess, he brings real added value to the collective. His high-level performances have won over the fans, with more and more of them proudly displaying his number 21 in the stands at St James’ Park.

If Erling Haaland is at the top of sales in Manchester City and in Europe, Bruno Guimaraes is establishing himself as the local darling in Newcastle. He is thus ahead of other summer recruits such as Sven Botman or Nick Pope, who are also very popular.
