The club has had a £6.5m bid for the attacking midfielder rejected by Montpellier.

And United are likely to table an improved offer for Cabella, also reportedly the subject of interest from cash-rich Paris Saint-Germain, over the coming days.

Cabella is valued at more than £12m by Montpellier, whose outspoken president Louis Nicollin has previously been critical of Newcastle as a destination for his players.

Nicollin’s son Laurent, the Ligue 1 club’s deputy chairman, yesterday revealed that United’s offer had been rejected.

“We have received two or three offers, including one for 8m Euros that does not match our expectations,” said Nicollin Jnr.

“The president spoke of 15m Euros.”
