French ace open to Manchester United move

Yohan Cabaye

Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye would consider a summer move away from the North East if Manchester United came calling.

The Frenchman was just one of a number of players who struggled at St James’ Park this season as the Toon were dragged into a relegation battle.

The 27 year old has been linked with a summer move to Manchester United as new manager David Moyes is desperate to strengthen his central midfield options after Paul Scholes’ retirement.

Cabaye is currently on international duty with France and is allowing his agent to pursue any possible interest the Red Devils have in him.

“For the moment I am at Newcastle, you never know what happens in football,” Cabaye told the Guardian.

“The season is not finished as I have still two matches [for France].

“After that I’m going on holiday and it can’t come soon enough to clear my head of the difficult season we have just had, and I let my agents work for me.

“I have had no direct contact with anyone, maybe my agents are currently in the know.

“I like what they do, the boss [Sir Alex Ferguson] has left, but they have appointed a very good successor [David Moyes], and he did some very good things with Everton.

“They are always well placed amongst the big clubs, yes for sure it could be an interesting challenge but like I said for the moment, there is nothing concrete and I am still at Newcastle.”
