Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish has confirmed a bid for PSG midfielder Johan Cabaye…
It is a deal that has been mooted for some time, with manager Alan Pardew knowing Cabaye well from their days at Newcastle. Several big names have been talked of as potential Palace targets, Chelsea’s Loic Remy and QPR’s Charlie Austin among them. But when money-man Steve Parish goes public we can re-categorize the story from ‘rumor’ to ‘speculation’. Parish told talkSPORT that the move signaled the club’s ambition to become a Top 10 PL club. ‘For us to get in the top 10 in the PL, we have got to make sure we are bringing in top 10 players.’ Parish describes the deal as ‘challenging’ – for which we can probably read ‘expensive’ – but it is a real demonstration of intent. And if they pull it off don’t be surprised if more ‘top 10’ players such as Remy, Austin et al follow suit. Jul 5 - 6:41 AM
