AC Milan consider move for PSG defender

Reports would have it that AC Milan director general, Ariedo Braida, traveled to Paris in order to see Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) defender Mamadou Sakho.

The Rossoneri director was present at this weekend’s 3-0 win at the Parcs des Princes against Nice, where the Frenchman featured in the starting XI.

The AC Milan hierarchy has made the acquisition of a centre-back one of their top priorities for the upcoming mercato, and the French international defender would be a point of interest.

Sakho has, however, struggled to really become a first-choice starter for Carlo Ancelotti’s side. Despite having made 23 appearances (including 21 as a starter) in Ligue 1 for PSG, Sakho has been absent from the team sheet in the most important matches and that most notably during the club’s Champions League campaign.

It is that brings the information to light. Braida would have only gone in a scouting mission, but with the possible hope of approaching the 23-year-old who would be liable to leave in the summer.

Sakho has often spoken of his discontent at not being utilized and considered more by the club, given his numerous omissions during PSG’s biggest games this season. Sakho had already threatened to leave at the start of the season when Thiago Silva arrived at the club, but was convinced to stay by Ancelotti.

The French international, fearing to be overlooked by France for the upcoming World Cup, has recently come out again threatening to leave unless he is given a more prominent role at the club. As a show of his stand, Sakho went as far as relinquishing the captaincy.
