Debuchy Demands Meeting With Lille President – Wants Out


News today that Newcastle target Mathieu Debuchy wants clarification on the position of his proposed transfer to Newcastle United, after their President Michel Seydoux has effectively pulled the plug on his potential move to Tyneside, because Newcastle have not offered enough money to meet the French club’s valuation of their player.

Mathieu Debuchy – not happy

This is the first reaction we have heard from the player himself, about the current situation, and the French web-site Le 10 Sport is reporting this morning that Mathieu Debuchy does not understand the decision made by Lille, and maybe he just doesn’t want to understand it.

But the news about the French right-back is that he has left a message for the Lille President to get back to him,  and explain what the position is on his proposed move to Newcastle.

He still seems desperate to make the move, although this thing seems to have dragged on a couple of years now – or so it seems. 😀

Mathieu  said today that he just doesn’t  understand the decision made by his club  of nine years – this is what he said:

” I called the President and I left him a message, to ask him to clarify the situation for me.” “I do not understand.”  “One day they told me they cannot let me go because the club did not find my successor.”

“Another day because the offer is insufficient from Newcastle. One day it is the coach who is blocking me, and the next day it is the President.”

“I am still determined to find something else, another experience, and I would like to speak with the President to make it clear between us.”

Lille are definitely playing hard ball with Newcastle and haven’t  forgotten how we  got Yohan Cabaye, Debuchy’s best pal,  last summer for only €5M, and they want more money (much more) this time for Debuchy.

Mathieu Debuchy does not seem to be too happy with last night’s developments, and given he has set his heart on joining Newcastle, we can understand that.

And the saga goes on.

    Is anyone joining/creating a mini-league for the Fantasy Premier League? http://fantasy.premierleague.com

    If not, I’ll create a mini-league if anyone is interested?

    thats the worst thing about this from debuchy point of view. if they had said all along “we wont sell you until someone bids 7mil” then fair enough but to keep changing the reason would unsettle the player even more

    i can see a transfer request coming or some other development by monday

    I can see why Lille are peeved at losing Cabaye for the figures mentioned, however, they did agree to his contract, hardly our fault for exposing it.

    For all those who thought this one was buried, I say fasten your seat-belts, this is gonna be a bumpy ride.

    I don’t blame their president, 8m for Debuchy is not overpriced. We got so close to seal the deal but our club still play around. The season is coming up and if we manage to get him, he’ll have little time to settle. If he doesn’t, I’m sure it will piss Cabaye badly.

    Twist his arm debuchy! Good for nothing president! It is good to see players want to play for us. Debuchy, Carroll and supposedly Anita. Let’s hope we can actually get some in!

    Ibiza – As for energy…I agree, I’m not creating a team with more than one site. But at least with the official one, you can join up to 15 private leagues with the same team.

    Oh my god, is this still going on?!
    This has got to be the most drawn out transfer in history. It makes the gameiro fiasco seem like kids play.
    I cannot see this deal happening until deadline day (if it does at all)!!

    If we do bring back Carroll, i don’t mind him returning. But i worry it will cost us a signing, ie if we signed Carroll for 15mill and Debuchy for 6.5, that might be the budget used up.

    We must sign a centre back, even if its maybe a lesser know one like Gouweleeuw.

    TDS…That’s useful…Best get planning my team then…don’t want to be seen to be dragging my feet, my fans may become restless!

    Ibiza – Sure will. Papiss says there’s about 40 people on there so far, presumably mostly from the blog. I’ve got a team already and in a league with some mates, plus another league that a mate entered me into. Would be good to have a bit of banter on here about it too!

    €8m is £6.5m….
    Now how much was Enrique worth ?
    Debuchy has to be a similar sum…within €1m or £750,000.

    After all this we will probably sign him and he’ll be crap and we will all scream what a waste of money and he will cost us a top 8 finish this season.

    Cockney Mike seems to have really wound the Lille President right up.

    Has he been making the offers in a ridiculous “Clouseau/’Allo, ‘Allo” type accent per’aps and saying:
    ” listen very carefully
    …I shall say this only once…” ??

    Perhaps when we pinch Carrol back at 70% off
    (Sports Direct’s favourite “discount”) percentage he’ll bring Enrique back with him..
    and not just as goalkeeping cover… 😛
