Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi hopes that Mamadou Sakho will stay at the club this summer.

Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi has pleaded with Mamadou Sakho to stay at the Parc des Princes this summer.

The defender is eager to leave the French capital in order to secure regular football ahead of the 2014 World Cup, having fallen behind Thiago Silva, Alex and Marquinhos in the pecking order.

Reports claim that the 23-year-old is in talks over a move to Liverpool, but Al-Khelaifi is hoping that Sakho will change his mind and remain where he is.

"Sakho is a child of the club just like Steven Gerrard is at Liverpool," Al-Khelaifi told The Mirror.

"It is hard to imagine him wearing another team's jersey. I'm a little surprised that he wants to leave.

"I had a discussion with him. My position is very clear and he knows it. We want to keep him and we will do everything to achieve that."

Sakho has 14 caps for France.
