Yohan Cabaye linked with Crystal Palace

According to reports, PSG midfielder Yohan Cabaye has been linked with a move to Crystal Palace.

Cabaye left Newcastle United in 2014 where he was one of the Toon’s standout players, attracting interest from of the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United before finally making a move to the capital of France.

However, the 29-year-old has struggled to keep his place in the starting eleven with other players like Marco Verratti, Blaise Matuidi, Thiago Motta and Javier Pastore preferred to the Frenchman.

And so, it is understood that Cabaye could be persuaded to reunite with his former boss, Alan Pardew and join the Eagles in what could be a £10 million offer.

It shows a huge signal of intent from Pardew who wants to attract the best to Palace:

“We want to compete with teams like Newcastle, Aston Villa, Everton and maybe even Spurs in the transfer market this summer. While we cannot compete with some of those clubs in terms of budgets, we can look to attract the kind of players they are also in the market for. If we could add that kind of quality of player to this current group, then we have a chance to push on.”

Cabaye may be hesitant to sacrifice Champions League football for a team like Crystal Palace but having lost his place for France and Euro 2016 approaching next year which will be hosted by Les Bleus, he will be desperate to get a season of first team action.
