Manchester United must big bid to land French playmaker

Manchester United's plans to land midfield target Remy Cabella will cost them big, as his club Montpellier will only be convinced to let him leave if a sizeable bid comes in.

According to the Daily Mail, David Moyes and his scouts have the 23-year-old on the list of possible candidates to move for once the January transfer window opens, though claim it will not be easy to land him and will not be cheap.

The Old Trafford club's defence of their 20th Premier League title is going disastrously and a 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle United on Saturday has left them 13 points behind leaders Arsenal.

Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement is obviously having an effect on the club, but the lack of creative drive in midfield is the area that many have identified to be key to Manchester United's troubles.

January will bring the reopening of the transfer window and the Red Devils are expected to make recruits in a bid to help turn their season around. Cabella is one of those on their list of potential targets but Montpellier are not keen on selling their star man.

They are in the midst of a relegation battle just two years after claiming an unlikely Ligue 1 title, though the key men from that win have now moved on apart from Cabella.

£18million is the price tag mooted for a player that is yet to make a senior appearance for the France national team, though he is highly rated and there is no disputing his talent.
