Manchester United appear set to lose out on rumoured target Remy Cabella, as his father has claimed that he is close to joining Premier League rivals Newcastle.
Hector Cabella, who is also his son’s agent, revealed: “Yes we are negotiating Remy’s transfer.
“He will join Newcastle this winter.”
Only last week did the French club say that no deal for Cabella would be considered until the summer, but they appear to have made a U-turn following negotiations with Newcastle and now Alan Pardew looks set to beat David Moyes to the attacking midfielder.
United have in the past been linked with Cabella, but it is understood that they have made no approach of their own for the 23-year-old.
