Yesterday, the club announced the return of three players for preseason training who had been given a bit of extra time off due to recent international duty.
One of those players has fast become a fan favorite at Newcastle after his tremendous performances this past season. That player is Swiss defender Fabian Schar.
This player must be kept this summer no matter what approaches are made. While Fabian was bought for just £3m from Deportivo La Coruna, he will be worth ten times that amount now.
That will have a lot of fans worried as we have just witnessed Ayoze Perez leave for £30m this summer to Leicester City. We dare say next to Sean Longstaff, the loss of Fabian would be the hardest for the fans to take despite him only having arrived last summer.
Fabian tweeted after his first day back at Newcastle with the simple phrase “Back on track”. Many fans responded to his tweet with a mixture of apprehension that he may soon be leaving and asking if he can play up front.
you’re the only thing keeping me going fabian
