      Mamadou Sakho to Crystal Palace
      Mar 28, 2017 04:15:19 pm
      Just read that it looks like Chelsea are going after Van Dijk from Southampton, who will replace him with Sakho. Why don't we tell Southampton that we won't sell Sakho unless we get Van Dijk?

      Because we are f**king clueless when it comes to making deals.

      Personally I'd like to see Sakho and Van Dijk with is next season, we need 2 players for every position to be competing for the league and champions league. That would really show we have ambition, but there's no chance of a bidding match with Chelsea.

      Really couldn't care less what is happening with the chavs or Sakho.

      Klopp is the man, and will buy another class CB this summer to supplement ours and a better LB as well.

      Probably players we have never heard off from the German league. ;-)

      Because it is important the squad, not just about the player.

      Think player and manager need to find a way to rebuild bridges and get Sakho back in the team. If Klopp is so renowned as a motivator and developer of men, show us how it works and get Sakho sorted.

      we paid close to £20 mill - we will be lucky to break even given our poor transfer negotiations....despite the prem being worth alot more now.

      Liverpool will demand £30m for Mamadou Sakho this summer

      Liverpool are hoping to benefit from Mamadou Sakho’s loan spell at Crystal Palace by demanding as much as £30m for the defender this summer.

      The French international has been in impressive form since moving to the Eagles on loan in January, helping spark a significant upturn in form for Sam Allardyce’s side.

      Sakho starred as Palace won at leaders Chelsea on Saturday, and Liverpool plan to cash in on the 27-year-old’s form by offloading him at a profit at the end of the campaign.

      The Reds are already aware of interest from both Napoli and Southampton, both of whom are expected to lose first-choice centre backs – Kalidou Koulibaly and Virgil Van Dijk – in the summer.

      A number of other Premier League clubs, as well as some in La Liga and Serie A, are monitoring Sakho’s situation too, and Liverpool are hopeful they will be able to demand even more than the £20m they asked for in January. Palace did not agree a right-to-buy clause when securing Sakho’s loan deal earlier in the year.

      Sakho, despite his successful return to competitive action, has no future at Anfield and will be allowed to leave once the right offer comes in.

      The former Paris Saint-Germain star fell out with manager Jürgen Klopp last summer, and has not featured for the Reds since April 2016.

      Liverpool believe they showed last summer that they are able to command high fees for players who are surplus to requirements.

      Christian Benteke joined Palace for an initial £27m, while the likes of Joe Allen and Jordon Ibe were also sold for good money given their status as squad players at best.

      £30m eh? 🤔

      I wonder if we will go looking for another centre half (deemed good enough to be in that bracket or better) or will that depend on CL qualification?

      Assuming our defence needs strengthening of course.

      If we can get £30M which I doubt that would be a great deal, plenty of German talent for less than that.

      It's an intriguing one this because while the talent of Sakho makes our hand strong the position we've placed ourselves in with disciplining him so publicly weakens it also.

      It's understandable that Jürgen has seemingly softened that approach now he is on loan, no doubt with a view to changing tact a little to the media. So while I see no way back for Mama I do think we might hear a few whispers that Jürgen "has been very impressed" and "has noticed a slight change in attitude" or some BS like that along the way.

      £30m is a very good fee for a CB and if we do get that we should have plenty to choose from. I'm happy with the 3 we have in Matip, Lovren, Klavan (as back-up) but I am worried about the injury record of Lovren and the obvious injury troubles that young Gomez has. Sure Lucas and Emre can slot in back there but we will definitely need at least one extra going forward, be very interesting which side Jürgen chooses to focus on. Both Lovren and Matip can play RCB so I'd guess it will be yet another LCB that we'll be after, been like a bit of a revolving door in that position.

      I just don't get how all the pundits think Van Dijk is worth £50m yet we were supposedly out of order for asking for as close to £20m as possible in the summer :D.

      Crazy isn't it? And I actually think Sakho is the better defender!

      The 'market value' of both players will be determined by only one thing... the price at which both, the seller will sell and the buyer will pay in an open, competitive market

      We will undoubtedly see who's more sought after come May.

      What leaves a player less desirable than another; f**k knows (for sure) but there's usually a good reason.

      Listen; as long as we strenghten... see ya Mama.

      Surely if there's truth to this rumour it puts us in a stronger position to get Van Dijk (providing he's an actual target too of course...)

      What you could have done Sakho after your brilliant opening was said, I made a mistake, I intend to spend the remainder of the season working hard to show ive learned from it and when my loan deal ends I intend to apologise to Jürgen Klopp and the lads who i've let down to try & salvage my LFC career.. Then i'll bring about world peace, end famine yada yada yada..

      3 very good reasons to.

      I can see both sides to this but I'm happy to trust Jürgen to make the right choice but I would say that what Mama says there doesn't exactly ring true to what the reports were. I've heard from a few of the reliable journos that he broke discipline rules on 3 separate occasions. Once for training, once for a flight (could be linked I suppose) and once for a team meal so to me Mama is underplaying his side of things.

       I really don't think Klopp would throw a very good player away just because he was late 2-3 times? You know what I think, perhaps Klopp is not a fan of clowns/jokers, Moreno comes across as one, doesn't he? So does Sakho (his social media suggests so).  I suspect it could be a personality clash and the reason why Klopp just doesn't like Sakho and happy to rid?

      Luis Suarez bit someone and people were clamouring for him to be forgiven so long as he was still able to play for us.....but because Sakho isn't world class I guess the standard is different.

      Because if I'm him I'd want the squad to know that once you cross a line you cross it.

      Klopp has a very hands on style with the players and with that style I think you have to make a point sometime to show it isn't all smiles and hugs.
