The only way Yohan Cabaye will leave Newcastle in the summer, is if a big bid comes in for him – which meets Mike Ashley’s assessment of the player, and since Yohan is Mike;s favorite player we think the fee has to be around £25M.
Yohan Cabaye – will only be sold for big money
We saw the story by ESPN that Yohan was hinting at wanting to leave Newcastle, but we didn’t read his comments in the same way.
This is what Yohan told ESPN yesterday, when he was asked if he would be staying at St. James’ Park:
“For the moment, yes. There’s one game left, we’re going to try and finish well before the holidays. With regards a transfer, I have agents who take care of that aspect of things.”
“PSG are a big club with a great project. But I’ve been playing in the Premier League for the last two years. I feel good here. I would be happy to continue in England.”
Yohan would also have been prompted that the rumor is that PSG want him in the summer, which is why he mentioned PSG – and he’s hardly going to say they are a small club with a useless project for the future.
As we said it could be that Yohan wants to leave in the summer, if PSG or some other big club with more money than sense comes in for him.
PSG are backed by owners who are trying to make Manchester City look like a poor club, so we may get silly money for Yohan in the summer – and if we do, then we think Mike Ashley will take it.
But we’d rather see the French International stay on Tyneside for next season, and help us challenge again for a top six place.
