Chelsea actually tried to sign ‘magnificent’ midfielder to replace Romeo Lavia after his injury

Reports have claimed that Chelsea made an effort to sign Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes.

According to Football Transfers, the Blues made a move to bring the midfielder in for January after the injury to summer signing Romeo Lavia was confirmed.

It was tough to hear a few weeks ago that Lavia had picked up an injury in training that was going to see him ruled out for a significant period of time.

The Belgian is yet to feature for his new side, after he made the decision to move to Stamford Bridge instead of Liverpool.

As he was building his fitness towards being fit enough to feature at last alongside the likes of Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez, it emerged that he was going to be out for another few weeks.

Chelsea considered Guimaraes to replace Lavia

Despite the large investment made on the former Southampton man, it has been claimed now that they were prepared to spend again to replace the injured star.

It has been reported that the Blues were considering a move for Guimaraes to fill the void that they have in the middle of the park.

However, the Newcastle man has now signed a new contract that involves a high release clause that makes it unlikely for any side to move for him anytime soon.

The Brazilian has previously been described as ‘magnificent’ by Alan Shearer after he burst onto the scene at St. James’ Park.

He will certainly be gifted a move to a top team in the coming years, however the strength in depth in the role when everyone is fit makes it difficult to imagine it will be Stamford Bridge he turns out at every week.
