Newcastle Transfer Target Admits No Deal Yet In Place
In January it was the Remy Cabella decision to stay at Montpellier rather than move to Newcastle, or indeed anywhere else.
The midfielder/playmaker said he was committed to stay and fight against relegation in the current season but would look at a move in the summer.
Various reports at the time claimed that a deal had been struck for Cabella to join Newcastle at the end of this season but those claims are now looking a bit hollow.
In an interview with beIN sport in France, Cabella has indicated that there is no agreement in place with Newcastle United, or indeed anybody else.
The player saying about his future;
“It is a trust agreement ( in other words – to stay for this season before a move) and the price? That is for the President to decide.”
Asked about any link with a move to Manchester United;
“You must ask my father who looks after me (as an agent as well as being his dad!). Until there is something serious then I will say nothing, pus it’s also a question of respect for both the club and the President, Mr.Nicollin. Of course Manchester United is a dream club for any player.”
Cabella has saved Montpellier from relegation almost single-handedly, from midfield he has scored ten goals and also claimed another five assists (compared to second top scorer with four and next best with a total of three assists).
While I don’t put any great emphasis on the Man U comments because he is simply answering a question and what else is he going to say, however I have to say that regardless of the Mancs, my hopes of having any chance of signing this player are disappearing rapidly as there will surely be a queue of clubs that Mike Ashley will refuse to compete with.
