As reported by The Times, Chelsea have approached PSG sporting adviser Luis Campos over joining the London club as their new sporting director.
The Premier League side, now owned and run by American Todd Boehly, recently sacked former PSG coach Thomas Tuchel before appointing Brighton manager Graham Potter as his successor. Boehly is supposedly unhappy with the structure of the current squad and has already approached Campos ahead of further investment in January. The appointment of a new sporting director was part of talks with Potter before his arrival.
Campos’ arrival as de-facto sporting director at Paris this summer, an idea that emerged from contract talks with Kylian Mbappé last season, shook up the established order in Paris with a list of undesirable players sold or loaned out and a host of new signings made. Christophe Galtier’s appointment by Campos was also a major departure from the club’s usual way of doing things and seems to have given the squad more focus.
It’s possible, but unlikely, Campos could work with both clubs as an adviser as he continues to do so with PSG and Celta Vigo, but this arrangement would be difficult to manage given Paris and Chelsea would be in direct competition for players.
