Newcastle in talks to sign Manchester United playmaker target

Published Add your comment

Manchester United look set to miss out on long-term playmaker target Remy Cabella, after Newcastle United opened talks with Montpellier over a January transfer, reports the Daily Mail.

The France international has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, after Montpellier president Louis Nicollin revealed in November that he'd sell the versatile midfielder for £14million.

Red Devils boss David Moyes is known to be in the market for creative midfield reinforcements, as he looks to get the champions' title challenge back on track in the New Year.

With six goals in 18 appearances so far this season, Cabella would strengthen the Old Trafford outfit were he to sign, but it looks as though St James' Park is a more likely destination for the exciting young winger.

Newcastle have a large contingent of French nationals currently plying their respective trades on Tyneside, so the addition of 23-year-old Cabella to Alan Pardew's squad, would not come as a surprise to many.

Toon chiefs have already contacted Montpellier to discuss the possibility of a mid-season transfer, meaning Manchester United must act quickly if they are still interested in signing Cabella.
