Newcastle Closer To Cabella Capture – Deal Agreed?

There is news in le10sport today that Montpellier Chairman Louis Nicollin is still holding out for around €16M (£12.8M) for Remy Cabella,  as Newcastle are said to be locked in tough negotiations for the skilled Montpellier right winger.

Remy Cabella – on verge of deal

In fact the French report is that Cabella is on the verge of leaving Montpellier and moving to Newcastle United:

Remy Cabella is about to pack up – the play-maker of the team is on the verge to agreeing a deal with Newcastle, despite the interest declared by PSG and OM (Marseilles).

Remy Cabella was seen at an airport yesterday – presumably with his girlfriend – as he flew out to have a  (fairly short) vacation in Corsica, after his World Cup exploits for France, although the 24 year-old didn’t see any playing time for France in Brazil.

There were even reports last night that Newcastle’s bid of around €12M had been accepted by Montpellier, but we doubt that’s true, but it does show Newcastle are getting closer to that €16M figure wanted by Montpellier, after initially bidding only €8M a month or so ago.

70 year-old outspoken Louis Nicollin is continuing to argue that since Florian Thauvin was bought by Marseilles for €16M from Lille last August, Remy Cabella is an even  better player and should therefore also be worth (at least) €16M.

While the negotiations between the two clubs are said to be tough, they are continuing, and Newcastle could still make the breakthrough fairly soon.

There’s a little bit of hope in that statement too – we admit that.

Comments welcome.

    Or maybe we are hoarding them all into one place to speed up the process…who knows! 🙂

    On Cabella, I can’t help but feel that it will become much smoother once the Debuchy deal is signed and sealed, with money coming in. He better be worth it after all this….

    If we sign Cabella I would be absolutely delighted, not because I feel that he is a great player with the truth being that I haven’t seen enough of him to form a judgement, but because we offered so little originally that due to past history I believed that he would never come as Mike Ashley has proven time and time again that he doesn’t do compromise, but to get him we would have compromised and the compromise would also be closer to their valuation of the lad than Ashley’s valuation of the lad, so as crazy as it sounds forgetting the player as he is immaterial in this post, it would at least get me thinking that perhaps Ashley is now starting to realise that he has got to give a little bit more than what he would like from time to time which has never happened before and is rather refreshing. Spoof being a little bit upbeat, now who would ever have believed that ?

    Ah but if i do it now, my head is clear for the rest of the day

    And your comment about cabella at RWB…… good, work 😀
    As you know by now, even i am fed up with negative tactics. Pardew is probably thinking “finally i can play 343” but will use cabella and sissoko as wing backs, and Tiote as a number 10.
