The Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperately hoping that manager Rafa Benitez can build on the successful season the Magpies have just enjoyed, defying odds to avoid relegation and then reach 10th position.
The Spaniard has masterminded a brilliant season at St James’ Park and the Newcastle fans are practically on their feet begging for Mike Ashley to financially support Rafa with all he needs to make the side great once again. Our punters feel like one player on Rafa Benitez’s shopping list should be ex-Chelsea star Andre Schurrle, who is valued at £16.2 million on Transfermarkt.
The 27-year-old continues to feature for Borussia Dortmund having made 26 appearances, scoring 3 times and assisting 6 goals for his team-mates. The German midfielder is still the top athlete he always was with his ability to get up and down the pitch quite brilliant for a wide player.
He has a lot of energy going forward and especially if the Magpies can’t keep Kenedy on a permanent basis, Schurrle would be the ideal candidate to replace the Brazilian. Newcastle are a club looking forward now under Rafa Benitez and the fans around the bar are loving it. You never know, if given the substantial budget the Spaniard requires, Newcastle might just become a top side again.
Andre Schurrle would be a statement of intent this summer because he is a player still at the peak of his form and Newcastle would do very well to sign him. Whether Mike Ashley will finally be willing to stump up the money for such a player is a question no one knows the answer too but Newcastle fans continue to hope as things look a lot brighter at St James’ Park.
