Arsenal and Manchester United given transfer green light for starlet

Remy Cabella

Both Manchester United and Arsenal have been put on red alert after transfer target Remy Cabella was told he can leave French outfit Montpellier in the summer, according to the Daily Express.

Cabella – who has been described by some as the next Zinedine Zidane – will not be sold in January according to the club’s President, although he did reveal that the summer could see a different story.

Both Manchester United and Arsenal have been heavily linked with the wide man, although Montpellier remain reluctant to sell their prized asset.

However, it appears the French club have been forced to reconsider their stance, and may well look to cash in on the midfielder in the summer, after fighting off interest from Marseille in the previous transfer window.

When asked about the likelihood of a transfer for Cabella, Montpellier president Louis Nicollin explained:

“You would have to ask my son [deputy chairman of Montpellier, Laurent Nicollin] about transfers.”I am not aware of anything.”No, there was strong interest from OM [Marseille] last summer but we wanted to keep him.”

And speaking about the player’s commitment to his current club, Nicollin added: “I welcome the attitude of Remy, who has talked of leaving and who understood our position.

“He’s a great player and there will be opportunities for him [to leave] next summer.”

It now remains to be seen whether Manchester United and Arsenal follow up their interest in the 23-year-old in the summer, or whether January will see them fill their midfield vacancies.
