Newcastle United fans are calling on the club to try and keep hold of one of their out-of-contract stars this summer after fresh reports have emerged linking him with a move away.
According to Fotomac, Fenerbahce are set to sniff around Magpies right-back Javier Manquillo as the northeast outfit aren’t set to renew terms.
The single toughest football logo quiz of all time…
World Class score: 95% | Expert score: 80% | Veteran score: 65% | Intermediate score: 45% | Amateur score: 30% | Try Again: 5%
The 25-year-old has been at the club since the summer of 2017 after joining from Atletico Madrid and has gone on to make a total of 59 appearances.
Manquillo has featured 15 times this term, rotating with DeAndre Yedlin, who could also be leaving the club at the end of the season if reports are to be believed.
With the Magpies set to announce new ownership in due course, the future of many of the playing squad is up in the air, especially with uncertainty over whether or not Steve Bruce will even be in charge either.
Should Javier Manquillo be offered a new contract?
Many supporters at St James’ Park would like to see Manquillo stay if possible with some surprised at his recent displays.
Here’s what the Newcastle faithful have been saying…
he surprised me, fair play to him tbh

Personally, I’d give him a new 1/2 year deal to keep as a squad player and move both Yedlin and Krafth on https://t.co/H4xG6VLbbl

I think he should stay, very reliable this season

I’d personally be quite sad to see manquillo go. Been consistently good when he’s played and gives his all for the shirt. Would make a good backup for us, certainly better than yedlin or Kraft

He should have his contract extended personally

Why he’s been our 2nd best defender this season imo. Has really shined under Bruce
— Cameron🇸🇦 (@MajesticMiggy_) April 29, 2020
When fit, he’s our best right back, but the majority won’t admit it because he had a really rough first season. We should be renewing his contract no question. So reliable and so, so underrated.

Criminal to let him go. Best right back on our books at the moment.

It would be a huge mistake to let him go. Its Krafth that needs to be sold.

He’s our best right back why aren’t we giving him a new deal?
