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."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
