Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye, a reported target for Premier League champions Manchester United, admits he would be interested in a summer transfer window move to Monaco.

The Ligue 2 champions have already made a significant impact in the transfer market this summer following the acquisitions or Radamel Falcao, James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho, and could be set to raid the Premier League before the deadline.

Cabaye has been touted as a target for the billionaire backed principality club, and the £23 million-rated France international says a move to Monaco would be an intriguing prospect for any player.

"Monaco have the means to build a strong team. It might interest everyone," he said, as reported by The Sun.

Manchester United have also been credited with interest in Cabaye, 27, as David Moyes strives to reinforce his midfield following his appointment as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor at Old Trafford.

Following the retirement of Paul Scholes, Manchester United are reported to be interested in capturing a creative midfielder before the start of the new season and, along with Cabaye, have been linked to a number of targets.

Barcelona star and ex-Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas would appear to be among their top targets, while his club and international teammate Thiago Alcantara has also been mooted as a potential acquisition.
