Cabaye To Be Sold

I don't think it's that much of a secret that Yohan Cabaye will leave Newcastle United by the end of this season.

For him to stay, it would take a hell of a shift in policy by Mike Ashley which would include us being ambitious and big spending.

That's 2 reasons straight away with more there if needed as for Cabaye's chances of leaving.

With 12 days left of the Winter window, we've reached a point where the rumour mill has him sold or part of an elaborate merry go round of transfer dealings.

French media have him gone for 21 million + with Remy Cabella being the catalyst.

No confirmation or proof of any deal is there but the right noises are being made from various quarters, no less than from Cabella's camp with his club's chairman having a sly dig at our home city in Newcastle.

It's a case of not if but when.

As for Cabaye and the PSG link. That makes sense in a lot of ways apart from the fact that a new French tax law is coming in which means a 75% tax rate for people who earn over a certain amount.

Cabaye would fall into that category, which would mean a hell of a wage to even beat what he's on now at St James' although a heavily incentive laid bonus scheme could get round that no doubt im sure.

With a price tag of 21 million +, the smart thing for me to do would be to wait until the Summer and allow Cabaye to 'buy out' his contract for 6 million. A massive saving for a club that wants to 'tap' him up.

A signing on fee of a minimum of 6 million would keep him sweet.

That 75% tax rate also applies to signing fees so for Cabaye to bank 6m they would have to pay him 24m and that would be just to break even.
