23 year-old PSG center-half Mamadou Sakho has been tracked by Newcastle for well over a year now, and we should know shortly whether he will leave the only club he’s ever played for.
Mamadou Sakho – could sign new deal at PSG
The 6’2″ French International was not first choice at PSG under manager Carlo Ancelotti last season, but now with former France manager Laurent Blanc taking over at the Paris based club, that could change.
And there’s news today that Blanc is moving quickly to try to keep the player at PSG, and Mamadou has been offered a news deal, with only one year left on his current contract.
It was Laurent Blanc who gave the player his full French debut in November of 2010, when Sakho played against England, and came on as a substitute at half time, and France went on to win that game 2-1 at Wembley.
Newcastle are said to be monitoring the situation, and we should hear fairly shortly whether he has decided to stay at PSG.
Mamadou has played 196 times with 7 goals for PSG since making his debut at just 17 in the club’s 3–0 win over Lorient in the Coupe de la Ligue in September, 2007.
He has played 13 times for France and appeared in all of the French Youth sides, and he would be an excellent signing for Newcastle this summer.
