The defender has reportedly attracted the attention of Premier League clubs Liverpool, Arsenal and Newcastle United and admitted earlier this week that he was desperate to play more regularly, having had to battle with Thiago Silva and Alex for a starting spot this season.

However, Makelele has ruled out the possibility of the 23-year-old being sold and has challenged him to prove he should be first choice at PSG.

"Mamadou is the future of the club," former Chelsea midfielder Makelele told Le Parisien.

"It is impossible he could leave. Sometimes I also had bad thoughts as a player. He has to reject them.

"Of course he needs to hear that he is important, but sometimes he has to remain quiet. Mamadou has now reached a level where he cannot act as a child and ask for affection. He is a professional.

"He is in a world where the strongest ones don't say anything. The more Mamadou shows his power on the pitch, the more it will be impossible to not play him. Because he is just a great defender."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
