Liverpool are reportedly ready to pay half of Mamadou Sakho’s £100,000-a-week salary in order to find an interested party to take him in January.
The 26-year-old has been frozen out by Jurgen Klopp after being sent home from the club’s pre-season summer tour due to a lack of punctuality, and in turn he has yet to make a single appearance so far this season.
Having failed to find a solution prior to the summer transfer window deadline, Squawka now report that Liverpool are ready to do their part to try and find a way to move Sakho on in a loan deal in January.
It’s claimed that they are willing to subsidise his wages by contributing half of his £100,ooo-a-week wage packet in a bid to attract interested clubs who may have been put off by the thought of having to splash out on the French international’s salary.
Sakho has now fallen behind the likes of Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan in the pecking order at Anfield, and so an exit would seem to make the most sense if he wishes to get his career back on track.
Having been told to train with the Under-23 squad since a Snapchat rant in September, it appears it’s only going from bad to worse for the former PSG man, and so he would be wise to make the most of Liverpool’s offer and look elsewhere for a resolution.
With no end in sight to his issues with Klopp, a January exit on loan would undoubtedly be a starting point to re-establish himself as a permanent move away from Merseyside next summer looks likely.
