Revealed: Lille director of football has no desire to make Manchester United move

By | January 20, 2020

Lille director of football Luis Campos has reportedly has no desire to depart from his current role to make a move to Man Utd despite the recent rumours surrounding the Portuguese.

The 20-times English champions are believed to have identified the 55-year-old football mastermind as the ideal candidate to fill the vacant position at the club.

However, according to le10sport, there has been no talks between the two parties, and Campos does not intend to depart from his role with Lille to link up with the Red Devils.

Former Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho was allegedly keen for the Red Devils to secure the services of Campos while he was in charge at the club, however, their CEO Ed Woodward was against the appointment at the time.

The former coach is credited with discovering the likes of Fabinho, Bernardo Silva, Kylian Mbappe and Anthony Martial during his time at AS Monaco, where he acted as sporting director from 2013 to 2016.

The Red Devils, who are yet to conduct any business this transfer window, suffered a 2-0 loss at the Merseyside Reds in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The defeat at Anfield means that 20-times English champions are still five points off fourth-placed Chelsea in the English top-tier.
