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.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
