Man United join Arsenal & Liverpool in hunt for Frenchman

Manchester United are the latest Premier League side to join the race for wantaway Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Yohan Cabaye, according to reports from The Express.

The Frenchman looks set to leave the Ligue 1 champions after just 12 months at the Parc des Princes, with Liverpool and Arsenal having been linked with him in recent weeks.

Cabaye departed Newcastle to join the Parisians at the start of 2014, but his first-team opportunities have been limited in his homeland due to the level of competition in PSG’s star-studded squad.

The club themselves are thought to be ready to offload the 28-year-old, with meeting FFP regulations a worry after their years of lavish spending under Qatari ownership.

Arsenal saw two offers for Cabaye rejected last summer, while Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is thought to be a fan of the classy passer.

And now United are also in the battle, with Louis van Gaal stepping up his January transfer plans.

The experienced playmaker is seen as a good option by the Dutchman, who is growing concerned at the lack of presence his top heavy XI have in the centre of midfield.

Cabaye himself could be open to a return to England, where he was successful with Newcastle after his 2011 move from Lille.
