Montpellier president Louis Nicollin has enjoyed a fresh dig at the "great" Newcastle United.
Nicollin has slapped a â‚¬16 million fee on Remy Cabella's back after Newcastle failed with an opening offer of â‚¬8 million.
Nicollin said: â€śYes, the great English club Newcastle has made us an offer of 8million Euros and I refused.
â€śI think Newcastle is not for him and I also think they take us for idiots.
â€śThey sold Cabaye to PSG for however many millions, they do not have to take us for morons.â€ť
And speaking to Le 10 Sport in France he said he wouldnâ€™t sell Cabella on the cheap.
He added: â€śI saw Thauvin was purchased for 16million Euros and I think Cabella is better than him so letâ€™s say that 16 million he leaves.
â€śAnd if nobody wants to give us that he will remain here.
â€śHe still has two years of contract so there is no hurry.
â€śHe will probably be upset for a month and then it will get better.â€ť
