Football news LIVE: Barcelona to ‘relaunch’ Bernardo Silva transfer, Thomas Tuchel breaks silence after Chelsea axe


More on Campos

Luis Campos, who worked alongside Jose Mourinho in 2012 as a scout and tactical analyst for Real Madrid, worked as Monaco’s sporting director from 2013-2016.

In that time, he oversaw key transfer incomings such as Kylian Mbappe, Radamel Falcao, Anthony Martial, Fabinho, Joao Moutinho, James Rodriguez and Bernardo Silva.

His savvy signings saw Monaco win the French top-flight title in 2017 ahead of PSG, and he repeated the same feat when he worked as Lille’s sporting director from 2017-2020.

While with Lille, he signed the likes of Victor Osimhen, Sven Botman, Jonathan David, Rafael Leao and Nicolas Pepe.

His shrewd business there helped Lille win the Ligue 1 title in 2020 once again at the expense of Les Parisiens.

Not only known for an eye in the market, Campos also generated huge profits for Monaco and Lille in player sales.

He managed to offload Mbappe to PSG on an initial loan deal in 2017 with the obligation to sign him for £166m the following year.

And he managed to bring in around £305m during his time with Lille where he flogged the likes of Pepe, Gabriel Magalhaes, Leao, Thiago Mendes and Osimhen.
