Goal.com have claimed that Real Madrid are closing in on a deal for Luis Campos, who was previously linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

While all the focus over the last month has understandably been about Tottenham’s pursuit of a new manager, some sources have claimed that Daniel Levy also wants to change the structure by bringing in a director of football.

Spurs have not had a sporting director since Franco Baldini left the club in 2015 but the club are said to be eyeing a move for the likes of Fabio Paratici and Ralf Rangnick this summer. 

Campos, who is credited with helping unearth the likes of Kylian Mbappe, James Rodriguez, Fabinho and Bernardo Silva, is another name who was rumoured to be on Daniel Levy’s wishlist.

Sky Sports reported just a couple of weeks ago that the 56-year-old is looking to move to a Premier League club this summer.

However, Goal claim that Real Madrid have been holding discussions with Campos for two months and could now be set to accelerate the process of appointing him.

It is revealed that Campos would be willing to take over as the La Liga giants’ sporting director, having previously worked as a scout for the club and boasting strong ties with president Florentino Perez and general director Jose Angel Sanchez.

Spurs Web Opinion 

It seems like our chances of bringing in Campos likely ended the moment Mourinho was sacked. I do not expect Levy to bring in a sporting director should he appoint Pochettino given that the Argentine is rumoured to be demanding full control of transfers.
