Unverified Reports Of Newcastle Player’s Agent In Talks With AC Milan

There was a report by a Newcastle blog yesterday that Fabian Schar’s agent had held talks with AC Milan about a possible move to the club.

The report asserted that the claim generated from Calcio Mercato journalist Pietro Balzano Prota.

Today, the Shields Gazette are also reporting the same rumour.

Neither report have a link to the original story and the journalist has not tweeted this information, so we are unable to locate where this story was derived from.

However, this would not be completely shocking news if true.

Fabian and “The Mister”– Rafa has already left an unfillable hole at Newcastle

Fabian Schar was one of our top players last season and the Swiss International may well be on a lot of team’s shortlists.

However, he should have a massive price tag set on him. Over that past few days, we have witnessed how much of a seller’s market the transfer window has become.

There are reports that Manchester United have had a bid of £80m accepted by Leicester City for Harry Maguire. Remember when Paul Pogba’s £100m fee was shocking.

Well, now very good central defenders are going for close to that amount.

To fill the void that will be left by Maguire, Leicester City have had a bid of £45m accepted for Lewis Dunk by Brighton.

The market has gone absolutely bonkers with these fees. So we wonder how much Fabian Schar would fetch in comparison to these two fees.

While top English players generally have inflated price tags, we would have to think that Fabian would be worth more than Lewis Dunk.

    Surprise surprise.As I said on the last thread following Rafa and Perez out of the door.
    Why would any player with ambition want to stay at this club ???Please tell me for the fans because the atmosphere in the ground is none existent .
    It seems a fair few players are happy to jump ship now as they have had enough of Ashley.So how does the support the team not the regime brigade answer this as it’s clear the players don’t feel the same way about the fans

    We shouldn’t be selling our best players at any price!

    It doesn’t matter how much we get for Schar, the club will see very little of it reinvested

    Anyway, it doesn’t really matter because we live in uncertain, shambolic times never before seen at this club.

    The club is being stripped bare of any worth.

    Who knows where the next head coach is coming from? It could be anyone from Bruce to Di Matteo or Sherwood to Mcleish. Complete reckless abandon from the owner and his cronies

    You can’t really blame any of the players wanting to abandon ship since Rafa was forced out.

    The goalposts have been shifted significantly since the end of last season.

    Can’t imagine what the starting 11 will be against Arsenal

    Who can blame them – its a toxic environment run on the cheap. Reports
    that Bruce would be the lowest paid Manager, Charnlie is the lowest paid Director. All run by a man extracting hundreds of millions from the game. It has been mentioned numerous times – we have to go down and stay down therefore
    depriving the deceiving slug of his free advertising and 100’s of millions of tv money. Boycott, accept the pain then rejoice as we rebuild to a semblance of a properly run football club – its the only way.

    I would go as far as the conference if it meant fans could acquire the club, but Ashley will never need to sell so he would just sit on it. The quickest way to get rid of him is to stay in PL and for someone to buy it. But why hasn’t that happened this summer? Rafa worked miracles for 3 years, kept us up with no funds to refill the coffers. New owners would see us as a safe bet for staying up, but only if they had time to sort manager and squad. I feel that time has passed. If a deal couldn’t be done this summer then maybe it will never happen. The boycotts need to damage his brand but not destroy the team. We also need him to lose a lot of cash in his other investments so he needs to sell. The Stars will need to be aligned, just like the cricket yesterday! In the meantime he is making it very hard for fans to enjoy supporting this club. There is so much negative energy. We should ensure Ashley’s life is equally miserable.
