There’s a report in the Mirror today that both Tottenham and Arsenal are interested in signing Fabian Schar this summer.
Since the Swiss International came into the Newcastle side last November in the 1-0 win at home to Watford – our first win of the season – he has been starting and starring for Newcastle.
The center-back who can also play right back and in defensive midfield has played 21 times for Newcastle with three goals this season.
But he picked up his 10th yellow card yesterday and will now miss our next two games at Bournemouth and at Arsenal.
Spurs and Arsenal are said to have tracked Schar when he was still at Basel and he has adapted quickly this season o Premier League Football.
Rafa Benitez congratulates Fabian Schar on his fabulous goal against Burnley
And he won the Premier League Goal of the Month award for February for his fabulous strike against Burnley.
Schar cost Newcastle only £3M from Deportivo in the summer – a fantastic acquisition – and there’s just no way Rafa will let Schar leave.
Newcastle could make a big profit on the center-back this summer, but if Rafa stays so will Schar since the manager wants to build a top team at the club.
If Rafa does leave this summer we wouldn’t be surprised at all if Mike Ashley sells the 46 times capped Swiss International (7 goals) for a huge profit.
Ashley seems only interested in the money side of football and making a profit on players.
