There is a report in SportsDirectNews that Manchester United will come in with a bid for Yohan Cabaye today – but the Manchester club will need to bid the full £25M to get Cabaye, and then who are we going to sign to replace him?
Yohan Cabaye - Manchester United now interested
It seems that that Manchester United have missed out on a number of their targets, and David Moyes is anxious to add some creativity to his central midfield, and it could be that Yohan Cabaye is now his top target – but it’s getting a little late in the transfer window – with only eight hours to go.
It’s also thought that the Red Devils are trying to get deals completed for Everton’s Belgian International midfielder Marouane Fellaini, who will probably sign today.
And the Manchester club are also trying to sign Juan Mata from Chelsea, but the Blues would be unwise to sell one of their best players to their Premier League competitors.
And there is also news that Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera for a massive £31M fee, so maybe Cabaye is only a standby, in case they cannot pull off these deals – which seem to be a higher priority.
But if Manchester United do come in late for Cabaye, they will need to bid £25M in cool cash, and if Newcastle cannot sign an adequate replacement in the time available, then we shouldn’t sell Cabaye – that would be ludicrous and so late in the transfer window.
