Sakho open to Liverpool return after Palace loan

Mamadou Sakho has been an instant hit at the heart of Crystal Palace ’ s defence and whilst the central defender may only be on loan from Liverpool as things stand, there is every chance of us being allowed to make the move permanent in the summer if we do manage to avoid the drop.

Sakho moved to Selhurst Park in January after being frozen out at Anfield by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, but the Palace Selhurst Park manager Sam Allardyce would like to keep the defender but admitted earlier this month that it would take a “big negotiation” to make his loan move permanent .

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that previous reports which suggested that Crystal Palace have an option to make Mamadou Sakho’s loan move a permanent deal in the summer are incorrect.

Speaking at his press conference ahead of Liverpool’s game with West Brom this weekend, the German boss told reporters that there is no clause in the deal, which will be a blow to Palace fans.

The French international has been in great form for the Eagles since breaking into the squad in recent weeks and most fans would agree that they’d like to keep him at the club on a permanent basis.

MAMADOU SAKHO has ended his Liverpool nightmare by joining Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season. But now he has been given an opportunity to make a fresh start in the Premier League, with an option to make the Palace move permanent in the summer if the club avoid the drop.

Mamadou Sakho has made an impact since arriving from Liverpool . Sam Allardyce has lauded Mamadou Sakho ' s arrival at Crystal Palace for giving his side more defensive stability - but admits a permanent deal for the Liverpool defender would require a "big negotiation".

However, Liverpool are apparently asking for around £30million for the 27-year-old and, if he carries on playing at his current level, there’ll probably be a club willing to splash the cash on him.

A high asking price might not completely rule Palace out of the running to sign Sakho but with no clause in place, he’s likely to have a large number of options as his disposal.

Roma join race to sign Mamadou Sakho .
Since arriving from Liverpool on loan for the rest of the season at the end of the January transfer window, Mamadou Sakho has been nothing short of a revelation for the Eagles. In his seven Premier League appearances thus far, Crystal Palace have won five games (doubling their season total), lost just once, conceded just five goals and kept four clean sheets – it’s been a remarkable turnaround over the last two months. Crystal Palace are hopeful of signing him on a permanent basis, despite the loan contract not containing a purchasing option, and the Eagles will face intense competition for his signature. According to Calciomercato, AS Roma want to sign Sakho in the summer as a replacement for the Inter Milan bound Kostas Manolas and they are at the front of the queue to do so. It’s claimed that Sakho’s market value now stands at about £30m, which is in the ballpark of Palace’s club record transfer fee they shelled out to bring Christian Benteke to the club last summer.
