Manchester United are considering a £25 million bid for Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye, according to the Guardian.

The French international has established himself as one of the canniest operators in the Premier League since joining Newcastle from Lille in 2011.

Arsenal were linked with a move for the midfielder last summer, while Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc has admitted he is keen on landing the 28-year-old.

However Manchester United appear to have sparked into life with time running out in the January transfer window, and having sealed a £37 million deal for Juan Mata, are now looking at the possibility of luring Cabaye to Old Trafford.

According to the Guardian, Red Devils boss David Moyes is looking to strengthen his options in midfield with a move for Cabaye, who is valued at around £25 million.

The paper adds that Moyes doesn't believe that Cabaye is the type of player to lead the club in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era like Mata, but has proven quality in the Premier League and could help them to a top four finish this season.

Manchester United signed midfielder Marouane Fellaini for £27.5 million on Deadline Day in September, however the Belgian is currently out of action with a wrist injury.
