Marco Fabian will stay in Guadalajara until Chivas wins a championship. Jorge Vergara, the outspoken Chivas owner, stated that even though large transfer offers from European teams were made for Fabian, he will keep him at the club until a championship is won. Fabian’s outstanding performance in the Toulon Tournament, where he scored seven goals, brought international attention for the young Mexican forward. All rumors that Fabian would start the season in an English or Spanish team are over, as Vergara has made the final decision about the striker’s future.
The question is, will Vergara really keep Marco Fabian at Chivas until they win a championship? The short answer is of course not. Vergara most likely wants Fabian to stay for at least one more season, in an effort to create a better team that will help fill out the too-often-empty seats of Omnilife stadium. Vergara brought in proven players like Luis Perez and Marquez Lugo in an effort to increase the offensive vitality of the team. If Fabian were taken off the team, Chivas would be forced to purchase a new proven striker; something that might be out of Chivas’ range, as they have already spent over $7 million during this off season.
Another reason Vergara is keeping Fabian at Chivas, is that he is hoping that Fabian will have an excellent season, thus raising the transfer value of Marco in the international soccer market. Overall, I don’t believe Fabian will stay at Chivas for more than a year. As his level of play rises, more international offers will come to Vergara, until a certain monetary offer is reached where the Chivas owner will have no option but to accept.
