SAN FRANCISCO — San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders has entered negotiations with the San Diego Chargers in hopes of reaching a stadium deal that would keep the National Football League team in the city.

“Over the past six months, the mayor’s office and the Chargers have met a half a dozen times to talk about various areas and various concepts, primarily in the downtown area,” Sanders spokesman Darren Pudgil said in an interview earlier this week. “We are going to continue those discussions and see if we can come up with sometime of plan for a specific site downtown.”
