Manchester United and Liverpool are poised to join Arsenal in the race for Yohan Cabaye’s signature this January, with the France international having failed to settle well in Ligue 1.

Despite having only been made a Paris Saint-Germain player last January, after leaving Newcastle United in a deal worth around £19 million, the Daily Express claim that he is ready to leave the Parc des Princes, with his club looking to raise funds.

PSG want to sell

Laurent Blanc’s hands are fairly tied when it comes to investing in the transfer market, thanks to the sanctions in place for PSG’s breach of the Financial Fair Play rules, but the sale of Cabaye, who will naturally have a high price-tag due to the fact that his contract is raw, could give him money to play with.

A host of Premier League clubs as now thought to be ready to make bids as a result, with Cabaye’s form in England prior to his switch to France fresh in the memory. The 28-year-old playmaker was an integral part of Alan Pardew’s Newcastle side, and scored seven goals in 20 games during his last campaign on Tyneside.

Arsenal interest

It’s fair to say Arsene Wenger likely remains his biggest admirer, having come close to taking the player to the Emirates Stadium before his move to PSG was confirmed. With Arsenal struggling to get any sort of momentum going this season the Gunners boss will be looking for an inspired January transfer window, and a proven player of Cabaye’s calibre could be what’s needed.


That being said United are likely to be strong competitors for his signature, particularly given the fact that Louis van Gaal’s new regime hasn’t quite yet picked up the sort of speed needed to threaten the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea at the top of the table.

Manchester United rivalry

Over £150 million was spent during the summer on recruitments, but a relatively poor start which has seen them amass just 16 points from their first 11 matches has made it clear that the task of overhauling the squad is far from over. Defenders are rumoured to be his first priority, but Cabaye could represent a bargain he might not want to pass up on.
