According to several sources PSG have just had a £14 million bid rejected by Newcastle. In the summer Cabaye was the subject of interest from Arsenal as they tested Newcastle's resolve with a £10 million bid.
Newcastle rejected that bid in the summer and called it 'derisory'. However, as derisory as it certainly was, that did not stop Yohan Cabaye going on strike in an attempt to force a move to a Champions League team.
Newcastle will be keen to keep their best player as they have strong hopes of achieving European football this season. Nonetheless, as the vultures circle around, it will be a test of Cabaye's loyalty.
At the age of 28, Cabaye has little time left on his hands if he wants to add to the Ligue 1 and Coupe de France titles he won with Lille in 2010.
Already Arsenal have shown Cabaye's loyalty is on thin ground; with Arsenal and PSG showing their hand and Manchester United reportedly interested, Newcastle may not be able to hold onto their star player.
In addition, Cabaye is still on the original contract he signed in 2011. Back then he signed a five year contract due to expire in June 2016. This means next season Cabaye is liable to go on a free transfer in January.
Whilst the heart suggests Newcastle keep onto Cabaye at all costs because they are doing so well in the league, and also in case other talented players such as: Tiote, Ben Arfa, Remy and Debuchy decide to jump ship in copycat move; the mind suggests with Newcastle being so far away from relegation, and having little chance of Champions League football, they sell Cabaye for a tidy profit and reinvest the money into the squad.
Cabaye's ambition vs Newcastle's ambition: that will determine where Cabaye is in the nearby future.
