The controversial owner told Raza Deportiva that the player would not exit the team until it wins a league championship for only the second time since 1998.Marco Fabian will not be suiting up for a European team any time soon, Chivas owner Jorge Vergara has stated.
In an interview with ESPN Deportes Radio, the owner of Mexico's winningest team declared that while the U-23 star's progress has been notable, he will not entertain offers to move the player abroad until Chivas wins another league championship.
"Marco is not transferible. That's clear to him. He will not go Europe until Chivas are champions," said Vergara to Raza Deportiva on Thursday.
After the likes of Javier Hernandez, Carlos Vela, Francisco Rodriguez and Ulises Davila were transferred by the club to top-tier European teams, a string of bad results on the pitch has changed Vergara's willingness to bid goodbye to his star players.
The owner nixed any speculation that striker Erick Torres would be shipped to the English Premier League last year, while also halting potential transfer talk for midfielder Jorge Enriquez as well as U-17 World Cup champions Carlos Fierro and Giovani Casillas.
Fabian has raised his profile significantly after dominating performances with Mexico's U-23 team, which stamped its ticket to the 2012 Olympic Games and won the prestigious Toulon Tournament largely off the back of the Chivas man's offensive prowess.
The player had acknowledged during Toulon that he has had scouts approach him, expressing an interest in taking him to England or France.
Vergara also answered questions about West Ham winger Pablo Barrera, who has been linked to the club on numerous ocassions.
"If the manager and his staff ask me, I will sign him," said Vergara.
