There have been reports that Manchester United are monitoring top Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye.
Yohan Cabaye – after scoring against Wigan – his first goal for Newcastle
There was news earlier that the Red Devils were monitoring Cheick Tiote, Newcastle other top class central midfielder.
Cabaye was speaking to the French media, and he has rubbished those reports, although that doesn’t say they may not be true.
But why is it that whenever there is a good player emerge in the PL, the top clubs like Man United and the rest think they have to have them at their clubs?
It’s really annoying, and thankfully Cabaye says he just wants to keep playing for Newcastle United:.
“I heard about United’s interest in me, but things are only just beginning,”
“I have a bit of experience of clubs following me, so I would rather not get carried away by thinking too much about such things.”
“I simply want to concentrate on my objectives with Newcastle – and playing for Newcastle.”
Cabaye is still adapting to the pace and physical nature of the English Premier League, but that hasn’t stopped him from putting in some excellent performances so far this season, and scoring two magnificent goals at Blackburn and at home to Wigan.
For the record he has made 13 appearances for the Magpies with two goals.
Newcastle have the making of a terrific central midfield in Cabaye and Tiote, and Danny Guthrie hasn’t looked to bad recently either.
We need to keep all three on Tyneside, and surely Danny Guthrie has earned himself a new deal at Newcastle?
What do you think?
