Yohan Cabaye May Return To Newcastle In January


The Sunday People and former Chronicle reporter Alan Oliver along with Neil Moxley are reporting that Yohan Cabaye, who turns 29 later this month, could make a return to Newcastle in January.

Yohan Cabaye – could he return to Newcastle?

PSG are willing to give Yohan Cabaye back to Newcastle (because they don’t want him at PSG),  in exchange for Newcastle’s new top midfielder Moussa Sissoko.

Newcastle are asking £16M for the 25 year-old Sissoko, but the People report has increased that price to £20M – probably because that’s what we sold Yohan Cabaye to PSG for a year ago – and it ties up the loose ends, and would presumably be a straight exchange of the players.

Arsenal are also keen on Sissoko, and if you believe the reports we have already turned down an £11M bid for him from the north London club, and Arsenal are still interested, and may return with an increased bid.

PSG are basically trying to unload Cabaye, because he hasn’t fitted in at PSG, and that could be a warning to Sissoko too, because the Paris club have lots of talent in central midfield as Cabaye can attest to.

This is what a source told Sunday People Sport:

“Sissoko has been awesome for us in recent weeks. But that’s what we expected from him.” “When we watched him for Toulouse, he was heading them out at one end and within a few seconds he was charging into the other box, so we knew he was the man for us.”

Yohan Cabaye has had his time at Newcastle and wanted to leave for a Champions League club, and he got his wish,  but it just hasn’t worked out.

But we’d be very surprised if Mike Ashley would do a swap deal where he loses Sissoko for Cabaye who is three and a half years older than Moussa and will not improve – whereas Sissoko has already  shown great improvement this season.

It may make a good Sunday newspaper story, but it would make no sense to Newcastle United.

How much better off would Newcastle be having Yohan Cabaye and losing Moussa Sissoko – not much – if at all.

Anyway – that’s what we think.

    Would rather we sell him to PSG if we get a choice dont really want to see any of our players strutting their stuff for Arsenal or Liverpool

    PSG cant afford to buy him outright till they get rid of players

    We really dont need the money so if he does go on strike we should demand 25 million minimum with a player or 2 on loan as well but doubt it will happen

    I’m convinced that Alan Oliver is employed by Mills and Boon, one of the best fiction writers of his time in all fairness to the man though

    He’s tied down til 2019, demand 25/30 mil, why settle for less, that’s fair in today’s market.

    Why would Cabaye want to come back, he was desperate to get out of Toon and if Sissoko goes we’ll be in a relegation battle come the end of the season.

    If cabaye wants to come back (which I doubt) why not buy him outright and keep sissoko. Surely we can afford that (not that we need yet another centre mid mind)

    If Cabaye were to come back to the Premier League, he’d have far better options than us

    Is that part of Ashley’s new plan? List the same player twice? We might only have 10 on the pitch but think of the money saved on wages.

    great idea, but unfortunately there’s a regime at the club, buy cheap sell on for big profit.
    We all know what MA should be doing without breaking the bank but higher profits are all that counts in his eyes.

    Cabaye in and Sissoko out equals zero profit for Fatso. Sissoko to Arsenal equals HARD CASH for the horrible asset stripper. Do your own analysis….

    By the way. Are you by any chance off your medication Ed? Some of your latest blogs have been ridiculous.

    Tomorrows ‘Mister Ed’ headline. (Take your pick)
    ‘Life discovered on Mars. A ‘source’ states that Newcastle are lining it up as next manager.’
    Cliff Richard emerges as shock toon target.
    Former Toon legend throws his hat into the ring. Former Newcastle legend Pat Heard has won a hat throwing competition in Thailand, and would probably like a job as a manager somewhere.
