Blanc eyes Yohan Cabaye move

Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc has once again named Yohan Cabaye as a player who fits the bill as he seeks to reinforce his midfield.

Blanc is a known admirer of Cabaye, 28, after making the Newcastle United midfielder one of the cornerstones of his France side during his two-year spell in charge of the national team.

The PSG boss has consistently talked of his admiration for the former Lille player, who he sees as the ideal addition to his Ligue 1-leading squad which remains on course for a domestic Treble and has reached the knockout stages of the Champions League.

"We need a player with the same mentality as the others who are on the pitch or even on the bench," Blanc told Canal+ following his team's 5-0 thrashing of Nantes on Sunday. "He has to love playing. He needs to be good technically and strong, and whether he comes in or doesn't, there will be competition for places in each position.

“As for Cabaye, I ask myself the question. I know the man well. He has that kind of character. But there are others.

"We're very happy with his team, but with all the competitions we're in, there are going to be some breakages."

Cabaye, who is under contract at St James' Park until 2016, has played down speculation linking him to PSG, while Newcastle have made no moves to try and sell the 20 million euro-rated player they bought from Lille for just five million euros in 2011.

However, Canal+ reported early on Monday that the two clubs have agreed on a fee of 26 million euros for Cabaye.
