‘Take that seriously’: Todd Boehly could sign PSG man after ‘further meetings’ in the coming weeks

Journalist Dean Jones has told GiveMeSport that rumours that Todd Boehly wanting to hire Luis Campos as sporting director should be taken seriously.

After a busy transfer window in terms of playing staff, attention now turns to finalising members of staff for the boardroom, with many leaving throughout the summer.

This left Boehly a lot of responsibilities to deal with in his first transfer window in the sport, let alone at Chelsea.

Because of that, it’s now clear why the American is keen to hire a sporting director soon, with the reported aim being for it to be sorted before the World Cup starts in November.

Boehly wants Luis Campos

Jones has claimed that even though Campos is currently working with French champions PSG, he would not be surprised if Boehly made the move to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

He said: “I think there’s still further meetings to come. The Luis Campos one, I do think we should take that seriously.

“But I do wonder if that might be one that could be an interim solution as well. I think there are various things being looked at, to be honest, at the moment.”

The Blues had reportedly blown widely-renowned sporting director Michael Edwards away with their project at Stamford Bridge, however the former Liverpool man’s desire to spend a year outside of the game means he is currently unable to take the job.

This could see the club be more than happy to bring in Campos on a temporary basis, with there no doubt being an aim for Todd Boehly to remove some of the responsibilities from himself as soon as possible.
