Is it true? Have we signed Cabaye AND Gervinho?

Post  Guest on Sun Jun 05, 2011 8:07 pm

There have been plenty of rumours over the last 24 hours suggesting that NUFC are on the verge of announcing Gervinho as a Newcastle United player.

Reports in France suggest that Newcastle have paid a combined fee of around £14 million to secure the services of the two Lille players, which going on previous valuations would value Gervinho at about £10 million with Cabaye coming in at around £4 million thanks to the clause in his contract.

How true is it? Well that is the £14 million question isn’t it? I expect that we’ll start to hear a bit more about transfers in general now that the international break is over so I guess we’ll have to just wait and see.

What I will say is that the French press are usually far more accurate than our own, but it’s not exactly a foolproof system of working so I’ll refrain from getting the party poppers and champagne out for now.

If true though you’d have to give the club a round of applause. That will stick in the throats of some fans of course, but two of the top talents from Ligue 1 for £14 million would do for me.

As I’ve said though, we’ll see, although I do expect to see movement in the near future. Whether that is movement of players coming to Newcastle or players ruling themselves out of a move to Newcastle is something only time will reveal.

In the case of Gervinho and Cabaye I hope it’s the former!
