It's Down To - Mike Ashley v Inter Milan

31 July 2012 11:11
The Mathieu Debuchy saga drags on . but with an added twist.

Newcastle's bid of £6 million is expected to be beaten by a £7 million bid by Inter Milan!

Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye was confident his mate would be completing a deal to come to Tyneside "very soon".

But the Lille right-back has NOT agreed terms, despite what Debuchy’s agent claims.

Lille allegedly want £8.6 million - and they must be delighted Inter have joined the race because the deal now becomes an auction.

Ashley cannot slap down a cheque and say "take it or leave it" anymore . not when Inter can top it.
