There is news in the Mirror today that Yohan Cabaye met with Newcastle manager Alan Pardew yesterday, and told him that he wanted to leave Newcastle to get Champions League football at Paris club PSG.

Yohan can play in the knockout rounds of the Champions League since Newcastle have not qualified for Europe this season, and so Cabaye is not cup tied.
Things happened quickly yesterday and it was a bad sign for Newcastle fans when PSG Football Director Olivier Letang traveled to Newcastle to negotiate the deal, because he wouldn’t have traveled if it wasn’t fairly certain a deal could be reached – or had already been agreed.
If this is true than it’s the second time in six months that Cabaye has asked to leave the club, after he went on strike in August, when an £11M bid came in from Arsenal for the Frenchman.
Newcastle have again showed they are willing to sell their very best players for top dollar halfway through the season.
And Alan Pardew said today before an agreement was reached to sell the Frenchman that the Newcastle team revolves around Cabaye.
We wonder how Alan Pardew is feeling about all of this today – he cannot be happy.
