It could well be that Newcastle’s top right full-back Mathieu Debuchy will be the next Newcastle star to decide that the Tyneside club doesn’t match his ambitions, and hope that a top (ambitious) club comes in for him over the summer months, and it would appear he would just love to join his best friend Yohan Cabaye at PSG.
Mathieu Debuchy - PSG is huge
Mathieu signed a five and a half year deal just over a year ago, so in the summer he would still have four years left on his contract, and Mike Ashley would only let him leave if the Newcastle owner got big money for him.
This is what Mathieu has said in Telefoot today, when asked about the possibility of signing for a club like PSG:
“I’m under contract at Newcastle. I will focus on the end of the season and the World Cup and then after that we do not know.” “PSG is huge. It is a dream for many players.”
This is similar to what he’s said before, and of course the reason he talks about this stuff, is that he’s asked by the French reporters, who basically would love him to say something like – “Yes I really want to join PSG” - and they are simply causing mischief.
But we don’t have too many good players left at Newcastle, once Loic Remy moves on in the summer and Mathieu is one of those who hopefully will still be here.
So we really hope for two things – one is that no club comes in for him this summer or else an offer does come in and it’s turned down flat.
And the second is that Newcastle make some signs to our top players like Debuchy, that we really do want to build a top side for next season – and he can be part of that side.
With a distinct lack of ambition at Newcastle these days it shouldn’t be too surprising that our best players want to move on – and get Champions League football somewhere else.
Mathieu has been a tremendous buy for Newcastle at around £5.5M from Lille, and he’s played 42 times with one goal (against Sunderland), and has been one of Newcastle’s best players this season.
