Yohan Cabaye: Wanted by PSG boss Laurent Blanc

Magpies boss Alan Pardew has already admonished Blanc once this summer for seemingly speaking out of turn with regard to France midfielder Cabaye.

As manager of Les Bleus for three years before taking up his new role at PSG, Blanc is only too aware of midfielder Cabaye's qualities.

Commenting again on the 27-year-old this week ahead of PSG's opening Ligue 1 encounter at Montpellier on Friday, Blanc has even suggested Tottenham are interested in his services.

Quoted on le10sport.com, Blanc said: "He is a very good player. I have not changed my mind (about him).

"For now, he is at Newcastle. I have also read he is in Tottenham's plans.

"Newcastle, Tottenham or Paris - I hope he will still be at a big club in September."

Blanc, who has already spent £95million on transfers this summer, would again appear to be declaring his interest in Cabaye before the window closes at the end of this month.

Pardew, however, is unlikely to be impressed given it was only a month ago he last criticised Blanc for his remarks about Cabaye.

At the time, Pardew said: "I don't think that's right.

"He can get on the phone to me, or make a bid. I think that's the right way to do it.

"I think the way it's come out isn't perhaps respectful to Yohan."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
