The Crystal Palace fans in the Transfer Tavern are really rather hopeful of a major improvement under Frank De Boer next season.
With Sam Allardyce managing to maintain the Eagles’ Premier League status, our south London locals are confident the stylish Dutchman can reinstate the club back on the upward trajectory they looked like embarking on during Alan Pardew’s early reign.
Still, the former Ajax and Inter Milan coach could have life at Selhurst Park made difficult for him, if recent reports from the Sun are to be believed. They claim Yohan Cabaye could leave the club this summer, with Marseille reportedly keen on bringing him back to Ligue 1.
The 31-year-old has just a year left on his deal with Palace and new terms reportedly look unlikely, though not many of our Palace-mad punters would be happy to see him depart. A hugely popular player, few would doubt the former Newcastle United man’s immense quality.
Considering all of this, here’s a closer look at how Palace fans on Twitter reacted.
Imagine selling Cabaye though. Wouldnt surprise me but what a loss he would be.

With the lack of squad depth we have, do you really think management and board would let Cabaye leave? #cpfc

Would not totally be against selling cabaye. It would free up his huge wages giving us chance to get in someone younger and fresher #cpfc
