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."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
