Man Utd Transfer News: Fergie Eyes £20m French Midfielder

By on April 14, 2013

Despite the transfer window being closed there is still plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Man Utd target Yohan Cabaye.

Manchester United are lining up a £20 million move for Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye this summer, according to the Mirror.

The report claims United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has identified the French ace as a prime target as he looks for Paul Scholes’ successor at Old Trafford.

Cabaye has been a huge success since joining Newcastle from French club Lille in 2011 and has emerged as one of the most consistent central midfielders in the Premier League.

The newspaper suggests Ferguson sent his brother and trusted scout Martin Ferguson to St James’ Park last Thursday to watch the 27-year-old in action in Newcastle’s Europa League quarter final clash with Benfica, with the champions-elect understood to be preparing a £20 million offer at the end of the season.

The Express also claim that United’s representative was keeping a close eye on Benfica defender Ezequiel ­Garay and midfielder Nicolas Gaitan, who’ve both been reported as long-term targets for the club.

With Scholes close to bringing to an end his illustrious career at Old Trafford, it would be no surprise to see Fergie bring in another central midfielder this summer and Cabaye would be an excellent addition. His Premiership experience would be a huge asset and is still young enough to improve even further under the tutelage of Sir Alex, but let’s see how things progress in the summer.

    pliz pliz furgie, buy Ben afa (newcastle) and wanyama(Celtic) our midfield will never leak but create more goals for RVP and Wayne. playing Wayne in midfield in not something to praise and rely on. wayne is not good at passing balls and can commit dangerous fouls any moment. stop it.
