In a shocking turn of events, Olympique Lyon have refuted reports claiming that they have reached a £30m agreement with Newcastle for Bruno Guimarães. In a statement on Twitter the League 1 side has vehemently rejected claims that they were set to sell Bruno.
Reports from the media flooded social media claiming that the two clubs had reached a consensus over the sale of Guimarães. From Skysports to The Athletic every reliable media outlet seemed to confirm the news. Ever reliable Fabrizio Romano also gave the Here we go phrase which usually indicates a done deal.
Bruno Guimarães is currently on International duty with Brazil. Personal terms were however not yet agreed.

This move by the Lyon boss seems like a well calculated move to draw more interest in the player hoping for a bidding war. Arsenal and Juventus have long admired the Brazilian.
