Could a Newcastle midfielder add support for Rodri in Manchester City’s midfield?

It has become apparent as this season has progressed that Manchester City need support for Rodri in midfield. Manchester City’s midfield general is his side’s most important player and gets through a strenuous workload for Pep Guardiola’s side. The world champions are desperate for support for their star man. With that in mind could a Newcastle midfielder be the ideal player to add to City’s squad to support their star man?

Bruno Guimaraes has been one of Newcastle’s most important players since he arrived at the club. Upon his arrival from Lyon in January 2022 the Brazilian international has set about becoming one of the premier central midfielders in the Premier League. His strong displays were crucial in Eddie Howe’s side securing Champions League football last season. During his spell for Newcastle, he has made 96 appearances and added 13 goals and 13 assists during that time.

But what also stands out is his ability in the centre of the pitch. The Newcastle midfielder can dictate a game and his ability to disrupt the opposition is crucial to Newcastle’s success. Manchester City need a quality option to support Rodri. Bruno Guimaraes does tick a lot of boxes as a possible contender to fulfil that role for Pep Guardiola’s squad.

Bruno Guimaraes does appear ideally suited to the Manchester City squad. His ability to dictate midfield, break up opposition attacks and add goals and assists from midfield could be invaluable for Manchester City. There is a lot to play out in the summer transfer window but if City do look for a player to support Rodri this summer the Newcastle midfielder may be the ideal candidate.
