Montpellier midfielder Remy Cabella, a reported target for both Arsenal and Manchester United, claims he will be granted a transfer at the end of the season, having missed out on a move to Marseille in the summer.

The 23-year-old is regarded as one of the brightest young prospects in French football and his performances have led to links with a high profile move either within Ligue 1 or overseas.

There was an opportunity to leave Montpellier in the summer transfer window of this year, the player has explained, but club president Loulou Nicollin was not prepared to sell Cabella at that point.

Cabella, however, claims that following the rejection of Marseille he and Nicollin struck a deal that would allow him to progress to greater things were an opposition club to satisfy the demands of Montpellier next summer.

“The President would not let me but it is true that Marseille was interested. I agreed with the club, a moral agreement for one year,” Cabella told Canal Plus, as translated by Sport Witness.

This news will surely arrive as a boost for Manchester United and Arsenal, not to mention Marseille, with the Premier League rivals both credited with interest in signing the Frenchman.

Should Manchester United or Arsenal formalise their interest in Cabella then £15 million will reportedly be enough to secure his services, despite a previous valuation of £100 million by Nicollin.

Arsene Wenger saw Cabella first hand after he played against Arsenal in the Champions League last season, while the former France under-21 international could provide Manchester United manager David Moyes with the creative spark he apparently craves.
