Ligue 1 star looks on his way to England.
Yohan Cabaye is likely to leave Paris Saint-Germain and seek a return to the Premier League in the January transfer window, according to former Newcastle United star Olivier Bernard.
Writing in his column for the Newcastle Chronicle, the former left-back says that Cabaye has had a difficult time since returning to his native France and that the English game suits him better.
Mentioning Arsenal and Liverpool as potential suitors, Bernard believes he is almost certain to join a Premier League side this season as he looks to cement his place in the French national team.
“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. If they do it will probably mean that there isn’t an offer from one of the clubs that is playing in the Champions League.
“He loved his time here and I’m sure he wouldn’t rule it out completely – but I think it will be to go somewhere like Arsenal or even Liverpool, two teams that probably need a player who can play in that role that he occupies.
“I am absolutely sure that he will be available in January and I’m absolutely sure that he will be back in England next year. Yohan is better suited to the English game than the French game.”
