Yohan Cabaye is a better central midfield player than Manchester United have at their club at the moment, so in that way if the Red Devils bid for the Newcastle star midfielder and were successful, they would improve their current side – which seems surprisingly ordinary this season, and just one point better off than the Magpies.
Yohan Cabaye – Manchester United interested?
Of course the signing of Juan Mata from Chelsea for a massive £37M will help, and if they were to offer Mike Ashley something north of £25M for Cabaye, we think Newcastle would sell, although the fee may even need to be north of £25M.
Paris Saint-Germain have been interested in signing the Frenchman for over six months now, and manager Laurent Blanc often tells the French press he would like to have Cabaye in Paris, but maybe a better move for Yohan would be to move to the Red Devils, where he would have a regular starting position.
That’s not a given at PSG, where the French club have a number of top central midfield players, and plan to sign more in the summer, and a starting position would not be guaranteed for the 26 times capped French International, with all those caps coming while he has been at Newcastle.
But Yohan will not leave Newcastle until a top bid comes in, and if the bids are less than £20M, then owner Mike Ashley will keep Yohan at the club – at least until the summer – and that still has to be the probable outcome.
Yohan has played 93 times for Newcastle with 18 goals and 15 assists.
