Vice-president tells Newcastle: You want Remy Cabella, pay €15m

Remy Cabella

The Tyneside outfit are keen to bring the French playmaker to the Premier League, but will need to up their offer to land the star.

Remy Cabella has been consistently linked with a move to the Premier League over the last 12 months, with initially Manchester United and now Newcastle thought to be interested in the playmaker.

The attacking midfielder has confessed that he has played his last game for Montpellier and will move this summer, with reports in the press in recent days that the Tyneside club are closing in on his signature.

Montpellier vice-president Laurent Nicollin has confessed that an offer of €8 million has been received for Cabella, but that it will need to be almost doubled for the Ligue 1 side to sell.

“Over the last ten days or so we have received two or three offers, one was at €8m and we did not expect it,” he told L’Equipe.

“However, the president is talking about €15m.”

Cabella starred individually in a poor season for the Stade de la Mosson outfit, scoring 14 Ligue 1 goals.

Newcastle are in the market for a creative midfielder to replace Yohan Cabaye in the heart of their side.
