MANCHESTER UNITED and Chelsea are reportedly interested in Liverpool’s former transfer guru Michael Edwards.
Both Premier League clubs are looking to overhaul their recruitment operations this summer.
And according to the Daily Mail, both United and Chelsea are interested in acquiring the services of ex-Liverpool man Edwards.
Edward’s previous track record of signings at Anfield has attracted a lot of interest.
He was the man behind signings like Alisson, Virgil Van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Andy Robertson.
His signings helped Liverpool win their first league title in 30 years and reach three Champions League finals in five years.
However, Edwards is not keen on making a quick return to football after leaving Liverpool.
It also remains to be seen whether Edwards, who joined Liverpool in 2011, would be willing to work alongside his former club’s fierce rivals.
Chelsea are looking to replace outgoing long-time director Marina Granovskaia, who led the club’s transfer negotiations.
Meanwhile, new owner Todd Boehly will take on the role of interim sporting director while the club evaluates its options.
