Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton certainly had the X factor as they were caught performing karaoke at the latter's pre-wedding celebrations.

The Newcastle United duo jetted off to Brazil for some downtime following a gruelling Premier League campaign. Both started the Magpies’ end-of-season win over Tottenham Hotspur in Australia but were allowed to leave for the A-League All Stars clash.

Guimaraes, in particular, was relied upon heavily for Newcastle last season, playing 51 of the 52 available fixtures. His stellar performances have resulted in £100million links with Manchester City and Arsenal before his release clause deadline on June 30.

Joelinton has become an indispensable player on Tyneside since switching to midfield under Eddie Howe. While the 27-year-old missed most of 2023-24 through injury, he made a comeback in the final few games ahead of a full recovery next year.

Both players are aiming to make Brazil’s squad for the upcoming Copa America - a competition they last won in 2019. They have become close friends since Guimaraes joined Newcastle from Lyon in January 2022.

And the two were spotted living it up at a bash to celebrate Joelinton’s wedding with long-term partner Thays Gondim. In their native country, the duo were snapped singing on stage shirtless alongside other guests. We’re not sure if they’d get a yes from us…

Newcastle fans were howling at the Brazilian pair on social media. One comment read: “Bruno and Joelinton, shirtless and having a sing-along on stage after a few beers. The build-up to Big Joe's Wedding looks to be going well!”

Another used the occasion to persuade both players to stay at St James’ Park. The post read: “Keep building that bond lads. Make it so you're inseparable. I don't want either of you going anywhere!”
