Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing former Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye from Paris Saint-Germain.

Crystal Palace are interested in signing Yohan Cabaye from Paris Saint-Germain this summer but they have problems with his wage, according to The Mirror.

It has been reported by the British newspaper that Premier League outfit Palace have “set a £60,000-a-week salary limit on any signings”.

Cabaye allegedly earns more than that at French giants PSG, which means that agreement over a deal could be a problem.

Leaving the Ligue 1 champions for Palace would be a step down for Cabaye, and it would be a blow for him if he has to take a pay-cut as well.

However, the fact that the former Lille midfielder wants to play regular football could play a role in his final decision.

Moreover, Cabaye has worked with Palace manager Alan Pardew at Premier League rivals Newcastle United - this could also be a favourable factor for the Eagles.

The 29-year-old France international scored one goal and created nine chances in 24 Ligue 1 appearances in the recently concluded 2014-15 season.

In five Champions League matches, Cabaye failed to score or create a single chance, and had a pass accuracy of 89% and a shot accuracy of 33%.
