Luís Campos’ PSG role at risk

Foot Mercato are reporting that Luís Campos’ job as sporting consultant at Paris Saint-Germain is already at risk, only eight months into the role. 

Les Parisiens’ transfer dealings since the Portuguese’s arrival at the Parc des Princes in the summer is one of the main reasons behind the threat to Campos’ job. Bar Nordi Mukiele, and some positive showings from Vitinha in the early part of the season, the summer signings have failed to impress. 

Carlo Soler and Fabián Ruiz have both strung together a series of fairly anonymous performances, Renato Sanches has rarely been fit and Hugo Ekitike has failed to impress, to the extent that PSG are considering loaning him out. Campos and manager Christophe Galtier were hired as a duo, and at the management level, there is a belief that the means were provided to allow them to shine, but the results have followed. 

Whilst some of the blame for failures in the summer transfer window can be blamed on Antero Henrique, who worked on many of the deals, the same cannot be said of the winter window, during with PSG failed to sign a single player. The club were in the market for a replacement for Pablo Sarabia for the entirety of the window, but none arrived with deals for Rayan Cherki, Johan Bakayoko, Malcom, and infamously, Hakim Ziyech failing to be completed. 

In the case of Malcom’s move from Zenit Saint-Petersburg to the Parc des Princes, sources close to the Russian club are said to have not appreciated Campos’ behaviour during negotiations. 

Certain players contacted to join PSG next season are interested but are hesitant due to the lack of clarity on the current project at the club. Whilst Campos is already preparing for the summer window, Foot Mercato report that the chances of the freelance Portuguese sporting consultant remaining at the club are slim.
