Manchester United and Arsenal target Frenchman

Manchester United and Arsenal are both interested in signing midfielder Remy Cabella from French champions Montpellier, according to the Sun.

The French ace is rated at £5million and has recently started to make an impression with a string of impressive performances for the Ligue 1 side, who crashed out of the Champions League group stages in their first ever participation in the tournament.

Despite their surprising achievements of last season, the French champions have struggled in this campaign and currently sit 13th in the Ligue 1 table.

This, along with their failure to reach the next round of the Champions League has left some of the teams star players considering their future with the club.

Club president Louis Nicollin has expressed his desire to keep Cabella with the French side and said, “It will take a fortune for us to consider letting him leave.”

It is believed the 22-year-old is also close to earning his first French international cap after scoring four times in 15 appearances in the league for Montpellier this season.

It’s yet another name that both Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with recently with Sir Alex Ferguson still looking for a long term replacement for Paul Scholes, while Arsene Wenger is under increased pressure at the Emirates to bring the glory days back to the club.

At an estimated £5million, Cabella would certainly be a cheaper alternative to other players who have been reported targets for these two clubs.
