Montpellier chairman Louis Nicollin has revealed that star midfielder Remy Cabella could be sold during the January transfer window.
Even with his coach suggesting the club would not be able to resist a big money offer for their star player, the controversial president was adamant the 23-year-old would not be sold.
However, he seems to have changed his mind and now states that Cabella can leave for €17 million.
“If we are given €17m we’ll see,” Nicollin told Midi Libre, a daily newspaper in Montpellier. “Anyway, we have a deal with him for him to leave in June, not in January.
“He’s an intelligent boy who has started really well this season. Now, if during the winter transfer window, Manchester offers €18m as I’ve read, he will have to leave.”
Manchester United are believed to be leading the chase for the talented midfielder, although Marseille also attempted to sign the player in the summer.
Cabella has been in scintillating form this season, notching 5 goals in 11 Ligue 1 appearances for la Paillade.
