Manchester United are set to offer Newcastle United £15 million for unsettled midfielder Yohan Cabaye as David Moyes looks to strengthen the Red Devils midfield before the new season, the Daily Mirror reports.

United are moving for Cabaye after missing out on long term target Thiago Alcantara, who moved to Bayern Munich earlier this month and Moyes will now hope to land Cabaye instead, who recently said that he would like the opportunity to play for United.

Both Paris St Germain and AS Monaco are interested in signing Cabaye but United will now make a concerted effort to land the talented Frenchman, who cost Newcastle just £4.5 million two years ago.

Moyes is desperate to strengthen United’s midfield following the retirement of Paul Scholes and if things go to plan, the Scot could partner Cabaye with Cesc Fabregas next season.

The Red Devils have reportedly upped their bid to £30 million for Fabregas and hope that they can persuade the midfielder to come to Old Trafford by doubling his £100,000 a week wages.

Cabaye, who plays for the French national team, has become disillusioned with life on Tyneside following a disappointing season that nearly ended in relegation for the Magpies and will hope to leave the club at some point this summer.
