With a Yohan Cabaye transfer to PSG looking ominously imminent, we asked our top translator to have a look at what the French public are saying about it.
Our thanks to Pierre who has trawled various sites including L’Equipe, Sports 365 and France Football, to see what people are saying in France.
‘Last season we were mentioning Hernanez then De Rossi ; Mata, Griezman, Pogba. We all know that Blanc adores Cabaye. LET’S TRUST HIM, even if other rumours for other players are more exciting!’
‘A diamond shape in midfield with Matuidi, Cabaye, Motta and Verratti as a number 10 behind the 2 strikers, it will spark, lots of sparks!! Road to Lisbon ROAD TO LISBOAAAN’
‘If Blanc does not get his Cabaye, he will go on strike guys …quick, quickly give him Cabaye, he can’t wait any longer!!’
‘Cabaye will be useful in the quarter finals of the Champions League because if one of the 3 current midfielders gets injured or get a red or 2 yellows against Leverkusen, we would have to play Rabiot in the 1/4 and even Pastore who is a disaster, I prefer Cabaye !!!’
‘I would prefer Pogba or Hazard!’
‘Yes but I think that we are talking of a different price…!!!’
’42M€ ????? You have to stop smoking on the pitch at Newcastle ! 15 days ago there was question of a possibility at 25M and that was already a joke for a player of the calibre of Cabaye!! So 42M, it’s garbage and to see that Mata has been signed for 45M… benchmarking, do they know that at Newcastle?!’
‘Could not careless about CABAYE, it’s PJANIC that we need!’
‘If Cabaye doesn’t join the PSG, he will go to a top club (Barça, Bayern, Manchester City/United or Arsenal …) this summer. Le PSG would regret it. Silva and Ibra need to understand that it’s not just in the Italian Championship that there is talent. Did they trust Matuidi before they played with him’.
‘Basically it’s only L Blanc who wants him, it would make a nice change that a coach can choose his players and not the players choosing their players.’
