News today in the German press that German club Borussia Monchengladbach will join the race to sign Montpellier midfielder Remy Cabella, who Newcastle tried to sign in the January transfer window, but Joe Kinnear was unsuccessful.
Remy Cabella – German club enters the race
And it seems that Manchester United are also in the race to sign the 24 year-old French U21 midfielder this summer, and if that’s the case, there would seem little chance that Newcastle can get their man, but we suppose there’s always hope.
Cabella has recently said he is now 90% certain that he will leave Montpellier in the summer, and one reason he didn’t join Newcastle in January, was that he wanted to stay to help Montpellier fight relegation.
The French club are currently 7th bottom of the French League, and they are still not completely safe, and are 6 points above the drop zone.
The news that Monchengladbach are interested in Cabella is today being reported in the German newspaper Bild.
Cabella has played 14 times for the French U21 side with four goals, and this season at Montpellier he has 10 goals and 6 assists in his 29 appearances for the club.
In total Remy has 104 appearances with 24 goals and 17 assists for Montpellier, and he is one of the creative players Newcastle are trying to bring to Tyneside this summer.
