There was a report yesterday that French money-bags PSG were readying a new bid of €20M (£18.5M) for Yohan Cabaye, and there’s a report this Sunday, that Arsenal are readying a £20M bid for Yohan Cabaye – as it seems we will be having an auction this week for the player.
Arsene Wenger – wants Cabaye at Arsenal
But if Newcastle do not have the time to replace the player in this transfer window, that’s also grounds to turn down any bid, because we’ll be shooting ourselves in the foot – again.
It seems that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is determined to get Cabaye to Arsenal – and the first club (between PSG and Arsenal) to bid £20M for him will win this race.
The news of Arsenal’s interest has unsettled the 27-year-old Cabaye, and the French International has since refused to play for Newcastle, as he tries to force the move through.
This will not go over well with Newcastle fans, that our vice-captain has taken such selfish actions that have damaged the team.
Arsenal are in the Champions League, and have been ever since Wenger took over the London club in 1996, and the fact that top players want to leave Newcastle is hardly surprising, since the Tyneside club has shown a total lack of ambition in the transfer window this summer – and we’ve looked inept.
It seems Newcastle are only after good deals in the transfer market, and will not even pay a little bit over the odds to get their top targets, and that has led to a number of our targets going elsewhere over these last two summer transfer windows.
We’ll see what happens this week, but Newcastle must show some guts and fortitude and fine Yohan Cabaye for the childish actions he has taken in the first two games of the season, by refusing to play for the club.
And if Yohan goes, we are now worried that Newcastle will not have the time nor the skills, nor the determination – to get in a suitable replacement over the last eight days of the transfer window.
