Monaco keen on Newcastle star

Yohan CabayeMonaco could make a move for Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye in the coming months, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The Frenchman has become one of the Premier League’s top creative talents following his 2011 move to St James’ Park, and was a key part of the Magpies’ Europa League qualifying campaign.

But, after a disappointing season last time around, speculation surrounding Cabaye’s future on Tyneside has increased.

Monaco are keen to take advantage of any desire the 27-year-old may have to leave Newcastle, as they look to assemble a squad capable of competing for Ligue 1 honours.

The Mediterranean outfit only secured promotion to the French top flight recently, but have embarked on a spending spree thanks to the backing of their billionaire Russian owner.

The likes of Radamel Falcao, Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez have been snapped up for over £100million, and it seems that the spending will not stop there.

Monaco coach Claudio Ranieri sees Cabaye as somebody who can provide a calming influence in his midfield, and is more than happy to spend big in order to lure him to the Stade Louis II.

The ex-Chelsea boss would also have the backing of the club’s hierarchy, with their CEO, Vadim Vasilyev, admitting that the ex-Lille man is in their thoughts.

“Yohan Cabaye? He is an exciting player,” said Vasilyev.

Newcastle are far from keen to sell, but a big money offer may prove too tempting as they themselves look to bolster their squad this summer.

Shoukd Newcastle fight to hold onto Yohan Cabaye? Or would cashing in while his value is high be a better option?
