Chelsea surprise move for Newcastle target Cabella
Chelsea are competing with Newcastle United for Montpellier midfielder Remy Cabella. The Sunday Sun says Toon officials were in France last week, when the 24-year-old expressed a willingness to move to Tyneside and sources indicated a £6 million offer had been lodged.
Newcastle are prepared to increase that bid to £8 million.
But with Chelsea - who could hand Cabella £90,000-a-week - having joined the likes of Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool and Arsenal in the race for the talented midfielder, Montpellier president Louis Nicollin is holding out for around £11 million.
