New Report Suggests Sakho’s Palace Move Isn’t Dead In The Water

1 Posted by - August 21, 2017 - News

Just as we always knew it would, the Mamadou Sakho to Crystal Palace saga looks all set to roll on until the very last moment of the summer transfer window, leaving fans of both clubs on tenterhooks.

This report gives the latest update on Sakho to CPFC, It seems his move is far from dead in the water.

After seeing his side fall to its second consecutive defeat, Frank de Boer is sure to be frustrated by the manner in which his time in the Premier League has begun but with the closure of the transfer window looming large on the horizon, we can all be sure that the Dutchman will be looking for new recruits, particularly in the defensive third of the field.

Having performed so well for Palace in the second half of last season, it’s hardly surprising that the fans are desperate to see Sakho return to Selhurst Park this summer and with the Frenchman still being completely frozen out of the first-team set-up at Anfield, you could be forgiven for wondering why the Reds have been so stubborn until now.

Luckily, the closing stages of any transfer window tend to force the hand of both selling and buying clubs, with demands shifting somewhat as the realisation of potentially walking away with nothing starts to become a distinct possibility in the minds of sporting directors who have a player to sell.

Unlike the current saga unfolding between Liverpool and Barcelona over Philippe Coutinho, Klopp and his board of directors aren’t keen to involve Sakho in the squad moving forward, making his continued presence and six-figure weekly wage packet a genuine issue. Until now, they have stood firm over their £30 million valuation of the centre-back but the piece attached above offers some hope of change on that front in the next few days.

As soon as Mamadou returned to Merseyside in May we knew this story would run and run. Now, I and almost every other Palace fan are left hoping that it has a happy ending.

      I know it’s hard Mark but if they shift Collins, I reckon they’ll pay it. Disgusting thought.

    I fear that our poor start will only strengthen the negotiating hand of Liverpool and we will have to pay the full £30m +

      Players can hold us over a barrel for wages/contracts too. We should have got these transfers wrapped up before the season started.

    Just sign him, then we would save money buying a new goalkeeper. Even I could play in goal with sakho in front of me 😄.
