Mamadou Sakho: Would like to remain at PSG, but admits he needs to play

The 23-year-old has spent his entire career to date with his home-town club, having graduated out of their academy system.

The France international has, however, been a victim of an elaborate rebuilding project at Parc des Princes under PSG's ambitious owners.

He has not been figuring in the first team as often as he would like and concedes that he needs to be playing regularly.

Liverpool and AC Milan are among those reported to be keen on offering him the game time he craves, but PSG are also prepared to do all they can to keep the highly-rated centre-half in France.

Sakho said: "I have to take a decision. PSG are my club. I was born here and learnt my football here.

"I want to play for this club my entire life but it has to be clear that I don't want to sit on the bench.

"I did not play as much I like last season because of the manager's choices. Every player wants to play every week and I am no different.

"There is an offer on the table. With a new manager (Laurent Blanc), I can talk and see what he thinks.

"I am flattered to be linked with clubs of the history of Liverpool and AC Milan. We will see what happens in the near future."
