PSG Offer £12.8m For Cabaye!

Last updated : 22 August 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

Arsene Wenger lodged a bid for the Newcastle midfielder at the start of the week, believed to be in the region of £10 million. Now PSG have raised the stakes with a €15 million (approx. £12.8 million) approach.

France’s leading daily sports newspaper reports that PSG have submitted a slightly higher offer than Arsenal’s bid and the likelihood is that PSG’s offer will be met with the same indignation from Newcastle as they afforded the Gunners.

Magpies owner Mike Ashley is said to be holding out for £20 million for the France international according to Eurosport.

Coach Laurent Blanc is a big fan of the 27-year-old, but would PSG be the better choice for Cabaye’s next career move?

In a World Cup year, playing in France would give him most exposure to the media and his national team manager, Didier Deschamps, but the Premiership is a far higher standard.

Arsenal undoubtedly need extra steel in their engine room, which Cabaye would provide, but Wenger has a plethora of midfield options available to him when fit, including Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby, Tomas Rosicky, Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta.
