Manchester United In Late Bid For Yohan Cabaye


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.

What do you think?

    Sports Direct = budget sports gear and budget news. The only thing that’s quality about it is the football club they’re lucky enough to be associated with…

    They aren’t stupid enough to sell Cabaye at 11pm at night. If a bid comes in too late it’ll be rejected. Don’t be cynical.

    While our lot are umming and aahing to get a player in at the right price, the mackems are doing completely the opposite!

    They will probably have signed about 15 players this window when it’s all done and dusted. Ridiculous!

    I’m sure I could get a bunch of mates to go see loads of matches and training over a few weeks, sign 15 that looked good and were available for a good price and know that a few of them would pay off! I’d rather sign 2 quality players than 15 possibles.

    For hells sake, when will all this speculation end. The amount of energy that’s been generated and wasted during this window would power Newcastle for a year!

    Kinnear and Ashley have been a damned disgrace.

    TDS

    Mannone, Celustka (Ln), Roberge, Diakite, Dossena (Ln), Cabral, Ki (Ln), Ba, Giaccherini, Mavrias, Karlsson, Altidore, Borini (Ln).

    How many of those would you want us to sign? I’d only take Giaccherini of all them, maybe Altidore or Ki on loan.

    They’ve lost Mignolet, N’Diaye, Rose and possibly Sessegnon. Pretty much their best players from last season apart from Fletcher.

    Conclusion: They’re in deeper doo-doo than us.

    made up story, no bid coming.. Sports direct (MA Media) make it seam like there is tons of interest for cabaye so when he doesnt sell they can tell the fans they CHOSE to keep him .When in reality, hes not that good and no one wants him at 20 mil. let alone 25!!! its to divert attention from the fact they are not bringing anyone in.

    you can criticise the type of players that Sunderland are signing but what you can not criticise is the fact that the Sunderland owner is going all out to back his manager and give their club the best possible chance this season, while Ashley is yet again gambling with our future

    Well, I’m looking on the bright side of our barren transfer dealings. It’s the clearest indication yet Mash is looking to recover the debt and move on – the more comes off that, the more the asking price for the club reduces. If we finish top 10 this season, with no outlay, a boost in profits from TV and the reduction of the wage bill – then I’m sure we’d make a profit of around £30-40m – he either uses that to take a considerable chunk off the debt, or if he doesn’t do that, has no excuse to provide a handsome transfer kitty next season. Personally I think he’s looking at an exit strategy – if that’s the case, it’d be nice to know that the next 3 season’s windows, at least, are going to be based on trading and loans, with that 30-40m set aside, whilst he recoups what he feels he is owed, all the while making us a more attractive proposition to buyers, instead of stringing the fans along every time.

    Isn’t a palatable thought, but probably where we’re at..

    And they’ve got a crazy manager who slags off their captain when he just made a simple mistake and slags off their striker for being a coward (which was actually fair – but should have been done in private).

    They have a few players that could be decent (Borini, Giaccherini and Altidore) but I agree, they’re probably in trouble.

    No club signs that many players and expects them to gel, look at QPR last season!

    And they have 1 point from 3 games so far? 🙂

    And we’re all going to be mightily p*ssed off if that’s all we get after a having our hopes raised at various points of the window.

    The only reason Sunderland are signing so many is because Di Canio wants to stamp his influence on the club and get rid of O’Neill’s.

    They don’t have a great keeper, a proper left back (until Dossena signs), or a creative centre mid.

    Don’t compare us to them because when we sign players we at least try and go for quality. I’d rather we didn’t splurge £20m on squad players and instead sorted out the left wing/forward position with one quality one.

    It’s all well and good backing your manager, but what’s the point when your manager is a nutcase who clearly can’t pick a top player so is just signing loads and hope some of them turn out ok.

    We’ve seen this before from lots of clubs (QPR last season) and it normally backfires, the club gets relegated and takes a few years to come back.

    I’d rather have an owner that sticks to sensible football business principles than just throws cash around and gets us relegated. It might be exciting with all the new players, but is it best for the club?

    We all know what’s best for our club and that’s to sign AT LEAST one strong striker before the day is up.
