Yohan Cabaye bagged himself a brace as Newcastle United smashed West Ham 3-1 this past Saturday. With this game, the midfield talisman is continuing to prove why he was so sought after last summer, and why Newcastle would be devastated to lose him.
But lose him they might, as reports have surfaced that French giants Paris Saint-Germain are preparing a £26 million bid for the maestro. PSG have been keen on the player ever since Arsenal’s £10 million bid was rejected by Newcastle last summer, a move that was not appreciated by the player; he held out for the first two games of the season in an attempt to force a move.
Now it seems that the move is inevitable and Cabaye will be joining the Ligue 1 champions next summer. Yet, the French international is remaining focused on Newcastle for the time being, according to his comments to the media. That’s nice especially for fans of the Tyneside club, but that does not mean that he will be lining up in black-and-white stripes next season.
The 27-year-old has made 31 key passes this season while adding seven goals and two assists. He has maintained a respectable 83 percent pass completion, which will only be increased in a pass-happy side like PSG. Do not be surprised if Cabaye returns home to France next season and signs with the Parisian club before this summer’s World Cup.
