There’s a report in the Chronicle today that Newcastle are getting confident they can wrap up a deal for Montpellier play-maker Remy Cabella, and that they have upped their bid to close to £10M (from an initial bid of £6.5M) and as we reported yesterday that’s a good bid for the player, who is said to be (very) keen to join Newcastle United.
Remy Cabella – keen to move to Newcastle
And Yohan Cabaye has given Newcastle a glowing reference of Cabella, and he has in addition given a glowing report of the Newcastle club to the player himself, while on duty at the World Cup.
And with Cabaye’s continuing positive comments on Newcastle United since he left the club in January, that can only help Newcastle sign a player who has vast potential and could become a terrific signing for the club.
Newcastle are locked in talks right now with Montpellier to get the deal done, and reading the tea leaves it seems that we even now seem to have a decent chance of getting the player on board soon.
Things are definitely picking up speed on the transfer front this week, as Newcastle are trying to get new players on board so they can make the squad for the New Zealand trip.
Our first game in New Zealand is on Tuesday 22nd July against Sydney FC – and that’s less than two weeks away.
We also have to believe the club are discussing the transfer of Alexandre Lacazette of Lyon, while a delegation is in France this week, but the player has recently said he wants to join a club playing in the Champions League.
