The French Daily L’Equipe is reporting today that PSG have significant obstacles to overcome if they are to sign Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye, and we reported yesterday that the Newcastle midfielder could be having a change of heart about wanting to move to the French club.
Yohan Cabaye – having second thoughts
We had reported earlier this week that an injury to 18 year-old midfielder Adrien Rabiot had caused the Paris club to increase their interest in all of their midfield targets, with Cabaye thought to be manager Laurent Blanc’s number one choice.
L‘Equipe is reporting today that PSG President Nasser al-Khelaifi has significant obstacles to overcome if they are to sign the 28 year-old French International, who has been in superb form for Newcastle this season.
We think at least two of those obstacles are the price Mike Ashley has put on Cabaye and is north of £20M, and the second is that Yohan is not at all sure that moving to PSG, where he will have significant competition for a midfield place – is a good thing at this time in his career.
It could just be that Cabaye is having second thoughts – certainly about moving in January just before the World Cup in Brazil this summer – and hopefully about moving at all from Newcastle United.
We certainly hope so.
