Liverpool “Confident” A Deal Will Be Agreed For Mamadou Sakho

2 Posted by - July 7, 2017 - News

If you speak to almost any Crystal Palace fan this summer, they’ll tell you that Mamadou Sakho is the player they’d most like to see the club sign permanently and according to the most recent reports in the north west, a deal is still very much on the cards.

This piece explains Liverpool’s confidence in a deal being struck for Sakho, with the Palace the undisputed front-runners.

After arriving on loan from Anfield at the last moment of the January transfer window, the Frenchman proved to be a massive hit with the Selhurst Park faithful, playing a key role in a number of vital victories in the battle against the drop, including memorable triumphs over both Chelsea and Arsenal along the way.

Sadly for both Mamadou and Palace collectively, his season was cut short in a home clash against Tottenham Hotspur, where he sustained a serious ligament injury that he is still recovering from as I write this; not that it’s put the top brass in SE25 off the idea of bringing him back to south London permanently before the transfer window shuts in seven weeks time.

Last week, we were told that personal terms with the defender were not expected to provide much of a hurdle after positive discussions between Mamadou’s representatives and Steve Parish, leaving Liverpool and Palace to iron out their differences over the transfer fee before it’s too late. Whilst Eagles fans have been careful not to get too carried away with the speculation, this latest update, (attached above) offers a hugely positive outlook on Palace’s chances of landing their number one target.

Few, if any loan players have had as sizable an impact on Palace’s fan-base as Sakho managed between February and May this year. Should we be able to pull this off, the feel-good factor it would create would feasibly trump anything that has come before in CPFC2010’s time in charge at Selhurst Park.

Keep everything crossed.

    Palace will not get Sakho as they are not willing to stump up the cash for him.

    Claude it’s called negotiating mate the old cat and mouse game. Palace will wait last minute and a deal will be agreed between 20-25 million. Liverpool don’t want him we do Liverpool r taking the pee and they know it so we will all just have to be patient. This deal will happen.

    Hi. Is it just me that can’t see the update attached above?

    I’m viewing on an iPhone, is that why perhaps?

    Cheers!
