Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Newcastle United v Stoke City - St James' Park

Newcastle have rejected a bid from Arsenal believed to be somewhere in the region of £10 million (though some sources reckon it’s nearer £12million) for Yohan Cabaye.

According to ESPN FC (among several others), Newcastle have knocked back the bid, which they have deemed to be “derisory”.

Stung into action by a frankly crap opening Premier League result, Arsenal are also supposed to have made bids for Geoffrey Kondogbia of Sevilla, Juve’s Paul Pogba and Schalke’s Japanese right-back Atsuto Uchida. By Jove, it looks like they haven’t got the foggiest what they’re doing and we love it! SIGN ALL OR NONE OF THE PLAYERS!

Any road up, expect Arsene to follow up with a £10,000,001 bid for Cabaye in the next couple of days.

    This is a really slow way to go about getting £25m out of PSG. The thing is, he’s probably (at a push) worth around £10m – about double what Newcastle paid two years ago – but PSG and others are all over him (despite his inconsistency, injuries & suspect temperament) , so you’ve got to hang out for at least £20m. Not that Pardew would see any of that mind.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA… TEN… HAHAHAHA MILLION….. HAHAHAHHAHA… I think someone’s missed a digit out the submitted number…… Arsenal and their 70-100m “war chest” to win a title/carling cup HAHAHAHAHA – which part of which leg would you like for £10m Arsene?

    (Are we watching a race to see which club can be the biggest joke in the EPL?!?)

  4. Jarren says:

    You know, it’s really weird, but I can really see Cabaye in an Arsenal shirt.


  5. Fergie says:

    NEEDED: 1 goalkeeper, 1 center back, 1 defensive midfield enforcer, 1 goal poaching center forward.

    TARGETED: another creative midfielder

    Not being in the squad last night might mean something…

    wait, how is cabaye worth any more than 10mil? I mean, I understand that transfer fees are completely inflated but he is a 10 million pound player, no more.
