Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Yohan Cabaye will return to the English Premier League in January, according to Olivier Bernard, as reported.
The former Newcastle United string-puller is being linked with moves to Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United ahead of the winter window, only 12 months after moving to Parc de Princes from Tyneside.
The France international has apparently so far failed to break into the French Ligue 1 reigning champions’ boss Laurent Blanc’s first-team plans, and Cabaye is expected to be available in the new year.
The Gunners failed with a bid for the 28-year-old Les Blues playmaker before he opted to return to his homeland, and the Emirates Stadium outfit are expected to enter the race for him once again, with their current squad lacking a player of his composure.
Former St James’ Park defender Bernard claims he will make a return next window.
“He will be back in England in January, absolutely no doubt,” he said.
“He will come back to the Premier League and he will already be looking for a club to join that will get him the games that he needs to guarantee him a place in the France squad.”
“Will that be with Newcastle? Well you can never rule anything out in football, but they will be very lucky to get him in January.”
Cabaye is expected to be available for under the €23 million price tag he cost only last year, as he is eager to seek first-team opportunities, more than his current line of chances in the French capital, and the hope of keeping his place in the French international squad.
