There was news this afternoon when the English press came out and said that Newcastle has turned down a £14M bid from PSG for midfielder Yohan Cabaye, the second time in six months that Newcastle have turned down an offer for their top Frenchman.
Yohan Cabaye – PSG negotiating fee with Newcastle
But RMC Sport in France are reporting something different to that, and they understand that Newcastle and PSG have only entered into negotiations for Cabaye, and no bid has been lodged – yet.
And as we had expected PSG have made Yohan their number one target for this January transfer window, and we’ll just have to see if they come up with an offer that satisfies Newcastle’s owner Mike Ashley.
But with only five days left in the window if Cabaye is to be sold, we’ll need to get in a suitable replacement.
According to the French radio channel, PSG have communicated with Newcastle saying they have a genuine interest in signing Cabaye this month, and they report that Newcastle want €20M for Cabaye – which is around £16.5M, so we hope it’s a lot more than that.
They are also reporting that figure would not put the Paris club off from attempting to sign the 28 year-old French International this week.
There should be new news tomorrow on this, and according to the English press, Manchester United are now seriously considering bidding for the Frenchman.
