There are several reports, one of which is in the Mirror, that Italian club Roma are interested in getting Yohan Cabaye in January, and maybe there’s some credibility in the report, because former Cabaye manager at Lille, Rudi Garcia is now the Roma manager.
Yohan Cabaye – Roma now interested in Newcastle midfielder
Garcia was manager of Lille for five years from 2008 until last summer, and he knows all about Yohan Cabaye, who has been in good form for Newcastle this season, but we hope all the summer talk about him leaving does not all start up again in January.
AS Roma are currently top of the Italian League after 11 games played, and 10 wins in a row and 25 goals scored and only two conceded, and Roma are 3 points ahead of both Napoli and Juventus.
Roma seem willing to make a £12M for Cabaye, but this is still not near the £20M fee that Newcastle owner Mike Ashley will demand for his favorite Newcastle player.
We have to hope that we don’t have another circus this January, and we also hope that Yohan’s head is not turned by Roma coming after him, like it was when Arsenal came in for him in August, and he refused to play for the team.
Yohan needs to keep his head down and keep playing well for Newcastle, and by January we have a chance to be higher up in the league table.
