Newcastle Bid €6M For Debuchy – Lille Want €8M


According to a report in the French web-site Le 10 Sport, Newcastle United have made a €6M bid, including bonuses,  for Mathieu Debuchy, but have been told it’s not enough.

Mathieu  Debuchy – Newcastle bid €6M – Lille Want €8M

€6M is around £4.8M, which seems a decent bid from Newcastle, but Lille President, Michel Seydoux, wants at least a couple of million euros more for his French International right-back, without any bonuses included in that amount.

With Google Translate and a little help from us here is a translation of the Le 10 Sport report from the French:

“In the next few hours, the leaders Newcastle need to submit a new offer – revised upwards –  to Lille for Mathieu Debuchy- and the club is now awaiting the fax from Newcastle .”

“So far, the Magpies hve offered $6M, including bonuses. This time, President Michel Seydoux expects at least an offer of €8M, without any bonuses.”

 “If the bid is not for that amount, the Chairman of the LOSC could lose patience and cut to the quick and close the door on the departure of Mathieu Debuchy, who in turn, absolutely wants to join Newcastle.”

“It remains to be seen how much the new offer is from the English club.”

So it does seem that things are getting to crunch time and push is coming to shove, and with Newcastle a little more than €2M off what Lille are now asking, surely the two sides can make a deal.

You would think that would be possible in the next few days – wouldn’t you?

What do you think?

    Looks like they got us by the short and curly’s on this one.
    Unfortunately Ashley is more likely to walk away than up the bid.

    I guess they’ll have a VERY unhappy player if they don’t sell him to us.

    Maybe we’ve been hit by a dilemma now that we have been offered Van der Wiel for less than Debuchy. Probably not & more likely down to Simmo still being here however it’s great we have plenty of options but please sign Debuchy, Van der Wiel or whoever soon MA!

    Its ONLY 2 million ha ha I bet Mike still complains at Greggs about the price of the pasties.

    Mikey n Del have categorically stated they do cash on the nail, no bonuses, image rights, no sell-ons and after Demba, no trigger bids. IF this story is true it means Lille really want as close to €7m as they can, and Ashley might do it at the last minute. But it will be last offer, we never come back, try explaining to your boy why you didnt sell.

    And to all you `just give them all they ask` merchants get real, Ashley will never drop his drawers and bend over for that one, because that would mean his bargaining power has gone.

    Agree with Tsunki, there’s a pretty clear transfer policy and we will stick to it, no matter who the player is.

    Cabaye won’t be very happy. I wouldn’t be happy either as I don’t see us getting top 4 with Simmo.

    No way WHU will pay more than his current wage, if it is a loan deal. If not and they are going to pay CL money to land Carroll, good luck to them both. If they are offering that amount of wedge, you couldn’t blame Carroll for moving on to them.
    West Ham cannot sustain that sort of outlay. There are better players
    available to go all in on, and WHU have been down that road before. Ask Pardew.

    I will bet the only incentives for players will be team targets reached, just like SD. Debuchy should be too old for value appreciated clauses.

    He will be here this week lads, player power, if he wants to go they got to sell him for a reasonable fee and if £4million is right that is reasonable in my eyes and probably in Debuchy’s.

    £6.2million pounds for one the best full backs in the world and one of frances 2 good players in the euro (we already have the other one) is an absolute steal. Also sky sources in italy are saying that inter milan are NOT chasing debuchy so c’mon, we are clearly the front and possibly only runners so if we can get a deal done asap that stops other, bigger clubs coming in and getting him

    To anyone who says, just pay the extra €2M as if it’s nothing, you seem to forget, that’s €2M out of our club! And if the club just caved into every demand from a selling club, we’d pay over the odds by a lot more than €2M every year.

    Many a time in Ashleys reign have we walked away from deals because of a couple of million. I dont think he minds as it reinforces his reputation for not being stuffed about. I hope we do get him and I would think 6 million pounds would be about right.

    Don’t forget Debuchy will be key to keeping Cabaye in future, so for that reason alone he’s worth an extra 2m. Cabaye will be worth 20m+ next summer.
