Manchester United have set their sights on Yohan Cabaye as a possible transfer replacement this summer, according to reports.
The Daily Star claims David Moyes is keen on the £20million-rated midfielder, as he looks to add two players in the position during the window at Old Trafford.
Cesc Fabregas is the Red Devils’ top target, the paper claims, with Belgian international Marouane Fellaini also on the club’s radar.
But, if either deal fails to materialise, then Manchester United will look to pursue the former Lille star.
Cabaye moved to the Premier League in 2011, joining Newcastle United from Les Dogues for an undisclosed fee.
And, despite suffering a groin injury during his second season at St. James’ Park, the 27-year-old has been nothing short of brilliant for the Magpies since his arrival on Tyneside.
Newcastle are aware of Manchester United’s interest, according to the paper, whilst Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with a move.
Toon chief Alan Pardew has also lined-up James McCarthy as a possible replacement, the paper claims, but will hope to keep Cabaye on the books despite the interest of the Premier League champions.
