Mamadou Sakho: Has opened the door to a summer switch

Mamadou Sakho: Has opened the door to a summer switch

The highly-rated defender is a product of PSG's academy system and was considered to be an integral part of their future not all that long ago.

Times have changed at Parc des Princes, though, with the club now in a position to spend big on any player that takes their fancy.

That approach has left Sakho frustrated on the bench and the 22-year-old has made it clear that he is not prepared to stay there.

Numerous Premier League clubs are reported to have expressed an interest in his services in the past, and the France international admits he would welcome the opportunity to turn out in England.

"I will do everything to play at the 2014 World Cup, but I need to be playing week in, week out," said Sakho.

"I cannot accept playing just a few minutes this season and next because this is a decisive moment in my career.

"At the end of the season I will sit down with my agent and club officials and clear up the situation.

"If I have to leave PSG to keep my place in the France national team, then I have no choice but to leave."

On the rumours liking him with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool, Sakho added: "I adore the English Premier League."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
