PSG identify Manchester United target as Cabaye alternative

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have been boosted by the news that Paris Saint-Germain have switched their transfer attention from Yohan Cabaye to Manchester United target Miralem Pjanic, reports talkSPORT.

The AS Roma midfielder has been identified by Laurent Blanc as a viable alternative to the Newcastle star, who has been heavily courted by the Premier League leaders.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger failed with a bid to bring the France international to the Emirates Stadium during the summer, but has continued to monitor him closely at St James' Park in preparation for the possibility of a renewed offer.

Cabaye has excelled during his time at Newcastle, and continues to play a starring role for Alan Pardew's side. However, his performances have not done enough to earn him a move to Parc des Princes, with Pjanic now seemingly PSG's primary target.

However, Manchester United have been keeping tabs on the highly-rated Bosnia international, with David Moyes on the lookout for a creative midfield addition at Old Trafford this month.

The recent injury to Michael Carrick has made the Red Devils' need for reinforcements all the more urgent, but it looks as though they'll now face competition for the Serie 'A' star's signature from the reigning Ligue 1 champions.

"Pjanic might interest Paris Saint-Germain in the winter transfer window and could be an alternative to Cabaye," confirmed Blanc.
