. Newcastle know THIS time he won't be going on strike (to get a transfer away) because Cabaye has been warned by the French coach he could MISS the World Cup if he doesn't play in the first team.
In September he was dropped from the French World Cup qualifying squad but soon he had a rethink and was back in a black and white shirt.
Newcastle want £20m for him; Arsenal offered £8m; no deal.
The Paris club could go to £12m, but I'm sure Mike Ashley knows he could get the asking price if Cabaye plays well in Brazil.
It was said on Saturday evening on MOTD "Cabaye would walk into the Man Utd midfield", and don't rule out an offer from United.
The French midfielder, who bagged the Magpies’ winner against Manchester United at the weekend, has long been linked with a move back to Ligue 1, and he admitted he wouldn’t be against a switch in the new year should PSG come calling.
Yohan Cabaye: "Contact with PSG? Not to my knowledge.
"I know that in January the rumours will start all over again. I’d like to know who does not want to play for Paris Saint-Germain today?
"I feel great, confident, especially compared to last season.
"It was the first time in my career I played [to avoid] relegation.
"This season we are well placed, we have taken points.
"I feel very good, I want it to be a big season, to try to finish as high as possible while thinking about the World Cup next summer."
