The Magpies midfielder has been a revelation since he joined from Lyon for £43million in January.
His form has caught the interest of Real Madrid, according to Spanish outlet AS.
Guimaraes is reportedly at the top of the list of possible replacements for Casemiro.
Manchester United are keen on the Real Madrid veteran and are said to have offered Casemiro the chance DOUBLE his reward with a move to Old Trafford.
And Casemiro is said to be open to leaving the club.
But a dive to Guimaraes wouldn’t be cheap.
It’s believed Newcastle would ask more than double the £43million they paid to sign him in January to let the midfielder go.
The 24-year-old has established himself as a key figure at Tyneside and is an important part of Eddie Howe’s future project.
So it would take a mega-money bid for Toon to even consider parting with one of their prized assets.
