One of Newcastle’s top transfer targets this summer is Remy Cabella, and there have already been some reports that Newcastle have started to move after the Montpellier midfielder, who we failed to sign for the Tyneside club in January.
Remy Cabella making secret sign – Newcastle are number one?
Cabella today has said this in La Provence:
“Now I know 90% that this is my last season at Montpellier.” “If a club make a proposal that interests me, Montpellier will let me go.”
“I ask myself from time to time ‘is it good to go abroad now to discover something else? Or is it better to stay in France?’”
Cabella can look at the examples of players like Yohan Cabaye, Mathieu Debuchy, Loic Remy and Moussa Sissoko, who have all improved quickly at Newcastle, because they are playing in one of the world’s top football leagues.
And of course the players they play against are some of the world’s best players – and that also helps a player improve.
There will be other clubs after Remy Cabella in the summer, but Newcastle could well be in the lead for his signature at the moment, even though Montpellier Chairman Lou Nicollin seems dead set against him joining Newcastle United.
Remy Cabella could become the first player Newcastle sign this summer (we certainly hope so), and he would cost somewhere around £12M.
