PSG have confirmed via their manager Laurent Blanc that Yohan Cabaye is a target for this transfer window.

How exactly his comments fit in with rules governing not tapping up players is anybody’s guess.

This is the latest from Blanc;

This followed earlier comments following an injury to Adrien Rabiot;

“It would be great to have an extra player in midfield, to recruit a player in the heart of the game.

“We need a player who has the same mentality as the other players, whether they are playing or are on the bench.

“He must love to play and be technically good & tough, whether this player comes or not, there’ll be  competition in all positions.

“I have been saying for a month and a half, the injury to Adrien makes this even more urgent, we need an extra player in midfield.

“I ask myself – I know the man (Cabaye), he has that character – but there are others.”
