Debuchy, Newcastle, Real Madrid and Reality

8 years ago

Spanish newspaper, Marca, claims that Real Madrid would be willing to pay as much as £9.5m for Mathieu Debuchy.

The story goes that Jose Mourinho has few alternatives to Alvaro Arbeloa at right back and had earlier tried to land Maicon from his former side Inter Milan.

The story apparently originated in France and it wouldn’t be a huge leap to speculate that this could be simply a ruse by Debuchy’s club/agent/grannie to give Newcastle a shove in the right direction to get their finger out.

I could be wrong but still think far more likely that the right-back will be gracing St.James’ Park rather than sitting on the bench in Madrid.

If Newcastle pay close to the market price then Cabaye’s mate will be on his way to Tyneside, I didn’t realise until recently that not only did both players play all their football for the one French club but they both grew up in Lille as well.
