Yohan Cabaye drops big hint that he’s set to move
Former Newcastle star Yohan Cabaye has gave a major indication that he sees himself heading off to yet another new club this summer.
The midfielder says that his priority at the moment is fighting relegation at Crystal Palace but in this latest interview, he was also happy to hint at what will happen after this campaign at Selhurst Park.
The player will shortly complete the second year of his three year deal in South London and it would be no surprise to see Palace happy to get one of their biggest wage earners off the books, as well as bank a fee for someone who would walk away for nothing in summer 2018.
Of course, if Palace are relegated they would surely definitely allow Yohan Cabaye to move on, along with any number of other big stars, though even if staying up it looks clear that Sam Allardyce will want to trade in the French international to help finance deals for players of his choice.
The former Newcastle midfielder turns 32 next January and whilst he may be starting to feel the pace in the Premier League, he should comfortably still be able to be a top performer back in the lower level Ligue 1.
In his interview with beIN Sports, Cabaye was happy to talk about Marseille having a ‘good project’ and the fact he knows Rudi Garcia well.
Yohan Cabaye made his name in France under Garcia, as they won the league and cup double together at Lille, which helped land the player a move to the Premier League with Newcastle.
Marseille skirted with relegation last season but since Rudi Garcia took over in October and with the backing of new owners, the club have risen to fifth in the table.
The new owners and Manager are determined to take Marseille back to being one of the dominant clubs in France and it looks a good bet that Yohan Cabaye will join the likes of Thauvin, Payet and Cabella in the summer.
Yohan Cabaye talking to beIN Sports as reported by Get French Football News:
“We (Crystal Palace) are still in the mindset of fighting relegation.
“That is my priority.
“For the rest, we will see…
“I know Rudi Garcia well and Marseille have a good project. In life, everything is possible.
“I do not know what the future holds for me. I am open to all.”
