On Tuesday, RB Salzburg confirmed that Christoph Freund would not join Chelsea FC as their sporting director. Freund will remain with the Austrian side while stating it’s the best position for him to be.
As a result, Chelsea is back at the drawing board when finding a new sporting director. After expressing interest in PSG sporting advisor Luis Campos, CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs reported that it would take a tremendous offer to see the Portuguese leave the French giants.
“PSG maintain Campos is going nowhere,” Jacobs said on Twitter. “It’d take something pretty incredible because he’d have to leave and, from Chelsea’s perspective, if sporting director, drop all other commitments. No chance of him advising since PSG won’t allow that & he wouldn’t leave them just to do that.”
Campos signed a three-year contract with PSG to help the capital mold a squad capable of winning the UEFA Champions League. After years of being dubbed “Hollywood FC,” the Ligue 1 side hopes Campos can build a balanced team.
The executive has prioritized youth and revamped the midfield for Les Parisiens. So now it seems PSG can breathe easy knowing Campos won’t be exiting the French capital for another job with a fellow European giant.
