We reported early yesterday on how Yohan Cabaye was helping Newcastle to sign 24 year-old winger Remy Cabella from Montpellier, and the news today is that Newcastle have launched an £8M offer for the French U21 International, who has great skills and would be an excellent acquisition at Newcastle.
Remy Cabella – Newcastle one of the great teams in England
But unfortunately yesterday we missed out the very best part of what Cabella said. 🙁
So here’s an attempt to put that right, and this is some of what Cabella told the Telefoot TV show in France:
“Newcastle is one of the great teams in England.” “Yohan Cabaye told me a lot of good things about them. “
“Newcastle is a good English club. I will see what my coach and club tells me.” “I need to make the right choice with regards to Euro 2016. I could also stay in France.”
With very good reason, the majority of fans are really down on Newcastle at the moment, after a terrible set of performances and results this year, but Newcastle still have a fantastic name in France, and let’s not denigrate the club too much.
And don’t forget we made Yohan Cabaye into the player he is today, and Yohan seems to have a great appreciation of what Newcastle did for his career in the short two and a half years he was on Tyneside.
The Frenchmen was ultra positive about Newcastle when he joined us back in June of 2011 from Lille, and that enthusiasm for the Tyneside club seems not to have diminished at all since he left us in January.
But it is very important that Newcastle get Cabella on Tyneside this summer and win the race to sign him, and there are other clubs like Marseilles after him.
If we can get Cabella, it could definitely at least start to raise the spirits and expectations of the Newcastle fans – if only a little bit.
We may be the only ones, but we think with Lee Charnley now in charge of transfers, Newcastle could have a very good transfer window this summer.
That’s what we are hoping and praying for, and it certainly could happen.
Howay The Lads!!
Note – my surgery today was extremely successful, but I’m very sore and still under the influence of the pain killers and other medication – but I feel really good and positive – so watch out. 😀
