LIVERPOOLS former transfer guru Michael Edwards is ready to pull out of the game this season despite popular demand.
Edwards left the Kop and was chased by Chelsea and foreign clubs.
But the 43-year-old would like some time to consider his options after 11 grueling years at Anfield.
He left Merseyside last summer and was heavily linked with taking on a role at Stamford Bridge.
But that now seems highly unlikely given his reluctance to take a job for now.
Edwards also worked with Portsmouth and later Tottenham but made a name for himself on Merseyside as a top talent spotter.
He brought the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk and Allison to Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have undergone a number of board-level changes following the departure of Roman Abramovich and the arrival of new owner Todd Boehly.
Club Director Marina Granovskaia and Technical and Performance Advisor Petr Cech both left.
And the American Boehly appointed himself acting sports director.

Manager Thomas Tuchel was subsequently sacked early in the season and replaced by Graham Potter.
It came just weeks after a record-breaking transfer window that saw the Blues spend more than £250million.
Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella, Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Carney Chukwuemeka, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Gabriel Slonina and Denis Zakaria were all brought in over the summer.
