ALAN Pardew has told Yohan Cabaye he can achieve his World Cup dream with Newcastle United.

And Pardew has also fired a broadside at new Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc, who has publicly courted the midfielder since taking charge at the Parc des Princes.

PSG and AS Monaco are keen to take Cabaye back to his native France.

Speaking last month, the 27-year-old also did little to quieten speculation over his future ahead of an important season for him at club and international level.

Pardew will hold talks with Cabaye when he reports back for pre-season training later this month.

“I think the way it’s come out isn’t perhaps respectful to Yohan,” Pardew said. “That’s something I want to talk to him about.

“I want to talk about this important year for him, with the World Cup at the end of it.

“I’m hoping he’s going to be an integral part (of France’s team).”

Pardew also believes Newcastle is the right stage for the likes of Hatem Ben Arfa, Moussa Sissoko and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa to press their international claims.

“You could argue we’ll have eight to 10 players in the World Cup,” added Pardew.

“So this is a massive year for our players individually, let alone as a club.

“Our fans must never take their eyes off the fact that international football plays a significant part in our season.

“For example, if Hatem gets in the French national team, you can imagine what it would do for his confidence.

“So they’re all things I want to happen.

“I want Hatem to play at a World Cup. I think he can play for France. I think Cabaye can play for France. I think Moussa could play for France next year, and maybe even Mapou.”
