It's Down To - Mike Ashley v Inter Milan
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.
