Now that France is out of the World Cup, Newcastle will make a fresh approach for Remy Cabella, the 24 year-old Montpellier midfielder who didn’t get any playing time at the World Cup, although he was in France’s final squad of 23.
Remy Cabella – please sign me Newcastle
There is news today that Lee Charnley will again be talking to Montpellier officials about a deal, after our initial bid of €8M (£6.4M) was turned down by the French club, and their outspoken 70 year-old Chairman Louis Nicollin said he wanted twice that amount.
But Cabella is keen to join Newcastle, and that will be in our favor, and maybe if we can go in with a good improved bid, we could get the promising player through the door.
Newcastle really have to be more bold in their pursuit of the top targets this summer, and to try to squeeze the very best deal out of the selling club every time – sometimes counts against us.
And we need another top signing soon, to go with last week’s acquisition of Siem de Jong _ which we feel was an excellent signing by the club.
Here’s hoping it will happen – and happen soon too.
Got to dash for my train now ….
