‘Should have kept him’ – Newcastle United fans on Twitter fearing potential transfer mistake

The Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern have been wondering what might have been today as a story on FussballInfos claims that former Geordie, Kevin Mbabu could be on his way to Manchester United this summer. The Swiss right-back was sold to BSC Young Boys last summer after four years at St James Park, having signed back in January 2013.

The defender has been tipped to go to the World Cup in Russia with Switzerland after a strong season with Young Boys in the Swiss league. The 23-year-old has been valued at £6.3 million by the good people over at Transfermarkt, and he could be set to get his big break in the footballing world after being touted to make a sensational Old Trafford switch this summer.

The defender’s opportunities in the Northeast were limited and he only made five appearances for the Magpie senior squad, although the decision to sell him could have been a big mistake. The 23-year-old can play anywhere across the backline, despite predominantly being a right-back by trade. The writing was on the wall for Mbabu for a while as he had two loan spells at Rangers and then Young Boys before eventually being sold by the Newcastle hierarchy.
