Yohan Cabaye: Wanted by newly-promoted Monaco

Yohan Cabaye: Wanted by newly-promoted Monaco

The Frenchman hit the headlines last week by declaring his interest in a move to Manchester United, leading to speculation that he is unsettled on Tyneside.

And along with free agent Eric Abidal, the 27-year-old is on the radar of the newly-promoted Principality club.

"Yohan Cabaye? He is an exciting player," Monaco CEO Vadim Vasilyev told L'Equipe.

"And Abidal is a strong player. If he could come back to Le Championnat everyone would be delighted."

The acquisition of French players from Ligue 1 is more difficult, as Monaco await the decision from the FFF about whether they need to pay taxes like any other French club.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
