Bruno Guimaraes’ cryptic tweet has got Newcastle United fans talking on social media.

Just days after the 2022-23 Premier League season came to an end, speculation has surrounded the future of Newcastle United star Bruno Guimaraes.

Guimaraes played a starring role in the Magpies’ incredible campaign in which a return to the Champions League was secured following a 20-year absence. He made 40 appearances in total, scoring five and claiming the same number of assists.

And while the 25-year-old enjoys some well-deserved downtime before linking up with Brazil for friendlies against Guinea and Senegal in mid-June, overseas reports have claimed Barcelona and Liverpool are interested in signing him.

So, Guimaraes’ latest - and cryptic - social media post, which translates from Portuguese to English as “my life I take care of” is perhaps interesting timing, to say the least.

Now, as far as Guimaraes’ future goes, it is understood the midfielder is very happy at St James’ Park and isn’t looking to leave. Newcastle, meanwhile, aren’t prepared to sell him under any circumstances.

Indeed, the Magpies have held talks with the Brazilian over a new and improved contract, which doesn’t expire until 2026, after becoming an instrumental part of the squad since his £35million move from Lyon, 18 months ago.

“I feel at home here,” Guimaraes said recently. “I’m very happy to be here to be playing and be part of this giant club’s story. For me it’s important and everyone knows how much I like the club, the fans, the support. For me, it’s like having something to remember my country [Brazil].”

And after being named as the North East Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year in March, Guimaraes said: “I think about [staying at Newcastle a long time]. “When I signed, [I thought] I would like to put my name in the club’s story. I think I’m doing it, but, of course, to get my name there, I need to win a title. I know what a title means for the club’s story. “People grow up and they never see Newcastle as champions. My motivation here is to win a title for the club.”
