Bruno Guimarães: the ideal name for Juventus

Avatar

According to Romeo Agresti and Mirko Di Natale, Juventus is interested in Bruno Guimarães, a Brazilian midfielder from Lyon. However, Lyon asked for a loan with an obligation to buy for €45M, which makes the deal difficult for Juventus. As far as is known, Juventus will try to reduce this amount so that the Brazilian midfielder can be A Bianconero player.

Individual Characteristics

Offensively

Bruno Guimarães is without a doubt one of the most complete midfielders that Juventus is currently looking at. He has great quality in passing, both short and long passes. To give you an idea, on the current season in Ligue 1 Bruno Guimarães has about 88% of profit in passes per game, in addition to making 65% of long passes.

In addition to the enormous quality in the pass, the Brazilian midfielder has great ability to conduct the ball, in the current Ligue 1 season, Bruno accumulates 77% efficiency in his dribbles performed. And despite not being his strong point, the Brazilian still can play as a box to box midfielder, even though he is an extremely technical player, in this case he would do a similar role to Barella for Inter Milan.

And without a doubt, the thing I love the most about the Brazilian player is that he is able to execute all these characteristics playing with extreme class, in my view, offensively, the player that Bruno’s characteristics most assimilate is with Marco Verratti.

Defensively

As much as he is not a defensive midfielder, Bruno is also a player with a good ability to steal balls. In this Ligue 1 season, the player has already accumulated 2.4 tackles per game, a very good average for a technical midfielder like him. However, the best defensive quality of Bruno Guimarães is he occupies a long swath of the field, covering many areas on all sides of midfield. This is clear from the player’s heatmap in the current Ligue 1 season:

 

How the player would work at Juventus

As a very complete player, Bruno Guimarães has characteristics that allow him to play both as a regista and as mezzala. However, I would prioritize using him as a regista, since Locatelli has more freedom and lived his best moments as a mezzala.

Thinking about a two central midfield system, like 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-2, I believe it would not be the best option for the team. This is because the Locatelli – Bruno Guimarães duo would not be able to perform the role that a physical midfielder like Mckennie performs. For this reason, I think systems like 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 (diamond) worked perfectly with a trio composed by Mckennie – Locatelli – Bruno Guimarães.

Is he worth €45 million?

By presenting all of his characteristics, I strongly believe he would be a perfect addition for Juventus midfield, of course, if Vecchia Signora manages to reduce the amount requested by Lyon, it will be ideal, but Bruno Guimarães would never be money badly invested by the club. He’s definitely the player who has capacity to change the midfield level of Massimiliano Allegri’s squad.
