If we look at who are the best players left at Newcastle after Loic Remy leaves the club this summer, most fans would probably say Mathieu Debuchy is our best player, and certainly he has had an outstanding first full season on Tyneside, and has quickly become a better player.
Mathieu Debuchy – leaving Newcastle this summer?
But there’s some bad news today for Newcastle fans (what more bad news?), in that Debuchy seems unsure of where he will be next season, and he has already been linked with a move to European Champions Bayern Munich recently.
And we cannot think it helped last month, that his best friend Yohan Cabaye, who had persuaded him to move to Newcastle during the European Championships almost two years ago, was sold for £20M to PSG.
It will not have gone unnoticed by Mathieu that Newcastle seem to lack ambition.
Mathieu has been speaking to the French media today, and he was invariably asked if a move to PSG to join his friend Yohan would interest him, and then about Yohan’s move to the Paris club last month:
“PSG? I am here at Newcastle until the end of the season and for next year, I do not know.”
“This is a great loss for us so obviously I was sad but I cam happy for him because PSG is a great club.”
“I had the opportunity to talk a little with Yohan Cabaye and it is clear he is really happy there.”
Mathieu has a five and a half year contract that lasts through the summer of 2018 at Newcastle – so that response does not fill us with great confidence that he will still be at Newcastle come September.
It was a really dumb move by Newcastle to sell Cabaye last month – and it only sent a very clear message to the players (and fans) that Newcastle lack ambition – so the best players at Newcastle will now be looking to leave in the summer.
It seems that Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy will be two of them that will leave Newcastle for bigger and more ambitious clubs in the summer.
And don’t think that Yohan is not telling his best pal how great things are at PSG, and that playing in the Champions League is terrific.
