The Spanish giants had been linked with a shock move for the Magpies midfielder, who only arrived on Tyneside in January.
Newcastle manager Eddie Howe had already rubbished the rumours and now Ghodoussi has added his say on the matter.
A Bruno Guimaraes fan account, which boasts over 500 followers on Twitter and regularly fools fans who think the user is Bruno himself, shared a clip from The Wolf of Wall Street with the caption "NUFC is home".
In the clip, Leonardo DiCaprio's character Jordan Belfort shouts: "I'm not leaving! The show goes one! This is my home. They're going to need a wrecking ball to take me out of here. They're going to need to send in the national guard or SWAT team because I ain't going anywhere!"
Replying to the video, Ghodoussi shared a series of laughing, winking, kissing, red heart emojis alongside the single word "never".
Whether the Newcastle co-owner knew the account he was replying to was actually a fan account or not is unknown - one fan wrote, "how has someone managed to trick Mehrdad, fair play".
Earlier today, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe addressed the transfer speculation during his pre-match press conference as the Magpies prepare to host Premier League champions Manchester City this weekend.
“Absolutely not,” said the Magpies boss, when asked if Bruno could depart.
“We’re trying to build a squad here that can make the club successful over the next few years. We want to enhance the group, not take away our best players.
“Regarding speculation, I’ve got no problem with that, as such. I think it’s a compliment to Bruno and how well he’s done for us.”
