Newcastle United's French midfielder Yohan Cabaye has said he would be open to a move to Premier League champions Manchester United. 

David Moyes begun his transfer dealings this week, bringing in young Uruguyan Guillermo Varela, and it seems the Cabaye may be next, with the Frenchman seeming enthusiastic about the prospect of a move. 

Newcastle have had a relatively poor season, but would be hesitant to let their play-maker leave, as manager Alan Pardew has seemingly built his French based squad around Cabaye. 

But Cabaye, speaking to reporters, has revealed he would relish a move to Old Trafford. 

When asked about a prospective move to United, Cabaye responded: "Yes, of course. I've liked this club (Manchester United) for a long time, I like what they do. The boss has left but they have appointed a very good successor and he did some good things with Everton."

Cabaye also revealed that the opportunity to win titles would be something that would persuade him to make the move to Manchester. But Cabaye seemed interested in listening to all prospective offers, should there be any set on the table.

"They are always well played among the big clubs. Yes, for sure, it would be an interesting challenge. I have had no direct contact with everyone; maybe my agents are currently in the know.

"As for me, I am listening. I like England as well but will need to look at the situation but you never know in football," continued Cabaye.

Cabaye could be on the radar for David Moyes as he goes in search of a replacement for Paul Scholes, who retired at the end of the season.
