Crystal Palace: Many Palace fans react as Mamadou Sakho attracts interest

Crystal Palace: Many Palace fans react as Mamadou Sakho attracts interest - Crystal Palace Transfer Rumours

Many Crystal Palace fans are reacting to the reports linking defender Mamadou Sakho with a possible move to La Liga.

According to Estadio Deportivo, via @cpfc_xtra, Real Betis are reportedly looking to acquire Sakho on a free transfer next summer. With his contract at Palace expiring in the summer, they hope that they can offer him a contract that will tempt him to make the move from South London to Spain.

With the likes of Gary Cahill, Scott Dann, James Tomkins and Cheikhou Kouyaté all 30 years-old or even older, there needs to be some new blood at the back, so it might be a case of cutting ties with the injury-prone members of the veteran centre-back crew, a category Sakho definitely falls into.

Roy Hodgson has praised the former Liverpool man’s work ethic in getting back to fitness in the past as ‘incredible’, but his injuries have been a huge issue as they have seen him miss 375 days of football since he joined the Eagles (Transfermarkt).

With the amount of injuries he has picked up and the fact that he is now on the wrong side of 30, the Eagles might have already seen the best of Sakho and therefore the move could benefit all parties. It seems fans want to get him off the wage bill and see him get a fresh start too.

Here is how Palace fans reacted to this news on Sakho:
