Revealed: Paris Saint-Germain’s key man ruled out move to Chelsea

By | September 22, 2022

Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain football advisor Luis Campos has played down rumours linking him with the sporting director’s job at Chelsea.

The 58-year-old reunited with Christophe Galtier at the Parc des Princes this summer and has overseen a period of transition with the Ligue 1 champions in the summer months.

With the Blues seeing Marina Granovskaia depart from the club in the wake of Roman Abramovich’s departure, owner Todd Boehly is on the lookout for a new man upstairs.

Boehly and Graham Potter are believed to have talked the appointment of a sporting director during the latter’s interview for the head-coach job, and a list of candidates have been mentioned in the recent days.

Campos has been heavily linked with the vital role, and a recent report suggested that the West London giants were willing to hand him a £260m transfer fund to join the team.

However, speaking to RMC Sport, the Ligue 1 giants chief swiftly shot down any hopes of the Blues prising him away from the Parc des Princes.

“I have a three-year deal here at PSG, as I wanted, and I’ve joined this club because I’m convinced we can do something extraordinary. I’ve the right energy to fight for PSG and do something great here,” Campos said.

Campos previously worked as a scout for the Los Blancos before joining AS Monaco and Lille as technical director, overseeing the latter’s Ligue 1 trophy triumph in the 2020-21 campaign with Galtier.
