PSG Agree Deal For Cabaye

Paris Saint-German have reportedly agreed a fee with Newcastle over the transfer of French midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

The fee is set to exceed £20m after an initial PSG bid of £14m had been declined a few days ago.

Newcastle boss, Alan Pardew, who was keen to keep the in-form midfielder at the club, has now openly expressed his concerns whether they would be able to.

“No, I’m not confident (that we can keep him),” Pardew said.

“I don’t think any team not in a Champions League position or fighting for a Champions League spot could be.”

Cabaye joined Newcastle for £4.3m in 2011 and caught the eye of PSG based on his great first half of the season with seven goals and four assists in the Premier League so far.

Before the season, the 28-year-old was also linked with a move to Arsenal and lately Manchester United seemed to be interested, but it is reported that the Red Devils didn’t want to meet Newcastle's asking price.

BBC reports that Cabaye is flying this morning for a medical to Paris, with the deal to be completed within the week.

Is Manchester United missing out on a player who could solve their central midfield problems? Have your say in the comment section below.
