Newcastle always seem to haggle on the price of anybody they are negotiating for in the transfer market, and it seems there is no difference in Newcastle’s move to bring in top Montpellier midfielder Remy Cabella.
Remy Cabella – on his way to Tyneside?
Manchester United were after the same player in the summer, and could still be interested in bringing the player in this month, and the price that was quoted for the player was around £14M.
But the Magpies seem to have gained a march on the Red Devils, and have moved quickly for the Frenchman, and while Montpellier would love to get the highest price possible for their top player, Newcastle must think a deal can be done far below the £14M being banded around.
But if Newcastle are to be successful for the French U21 International, it will be necessary to move quickly and we hope Director of Football Joe Kinnear can do just that, and bring in his very first permanent signing to Newcastle.
But if this thing stretches out, we may be in the same situation we’ve been with a number of our targets over the last few years, and refuse to meet the asking price of the selling club for their player.
So it could be déjà vu all over again this January, but if we do manage to sign Cabella, he will be the 7th Frenchman in a row we have signed at the club.
