Chelsea owner Todd Boehly ‘approaches’ PSG chief Campos over Stamford Bridge job

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has reportedly approached Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Luis Campos over a possible move to Stamford Bridge.

The Times report the Blues have made an approach for the PSG executive over joining the London side as their new sporting director as they look to reshape the hierarchy.

The appointment of a sporting director was believed to be involved as part of discussions with new boss Graham Potter on Wednesday.

Indeed, the Premier League giants, owned by Boehly, recently sacked former PSG coach Thomas Tuchel after a poor run of form while appointing Brighton manager Potter to take over.

It is thought that Boehly is unhappy with the structure of the current squad and has decided to sound out Campos ahead of the January transfer window.

Do you think Luis Campos would be interested in taking up the role? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Campos only just arrived at the Parc des Princes this summer but has firmly instilled his blueprint straight away, putting a host of undesirable players out to pasture, either being loaned out or sold, while bringing in a number of players.

Christophe Galtier’s appointment by Campos was also a major departure from the club’s typical format.

It has been thought possible – albeit very unlikely – that Campos could work with both clubs as an adviser. The Portuguese currently does this now with PSG and Celta Vigo – but the only trouble with it being Chelsea and the Ligue 1 champions is that they will be in direct competition with each other.

Campos built sides who twice denied PSG the Ligue 1 title. He brought in more than £305 million in transfer fees at Lille. From being relegation fodder under to Marcelo Bielsa to title winners in 2021 with Galtier, who he is back working with, only this time at PSG.

Some of the large-profiting making sales from Campos include Sven Botman, Fabinho, Rafael Leao, Thomas Lemar, Victor Osimhen, Nicolas Pepé, Bernardo Silva and Kylian Mbappe – the latter’s £162 million move made the striker the most expensive teenager in the history.
