Newcastle are encouraging Manchester United to make a formal bid for Yohan Cabaye in the hope of sparking a transfer tussle between the champions of England and France, according to the Metro.

The source speculates that Newcastle have now admitted that they are resigned to losing the Frenchman, with strong interest from a number of high-profile clubs, and are now moving to ensure that they are afforded the maximum compensation available for their loss.

However the Magpies did reject a rumoured £14million from Paris Saint-Germain at the weekend and are confident that an offer from United would help them in securing a larger offer for their star man.

It’s thought that Newcastle owner Mike Ashley will consent to the sale of Cabaye if the bidding exceeds £20million and given PSG’s financial power, coupled with United’s determination to improve their squad, it makes a deal a very realistic possibility. If recent reports are to be believed then £25million would be the ideal figure for the Tyneside outfit.

David Moyes has insisted that the chances of United making anymore marquee signings is slender following the capture of £37.1million man Juan Mata. However his head could be turned if Cabaye were to become available at the right price.
