Le Parisien devotes a double-page to PSG football adviser Luis Campos in its edition of the day. The influences of the Portuguese, from José Mourinho to Jorge Mendes via Olivier Gagne are particularly scrutinized.
The transfer window closed its doors a few days ago and PSG can now fully concentrate on their upcoming matches, with their eyes fixed on the match against Maccabi Haifa this Wednesday (9 p.m.). The name of Parisian football adviser Luis Campos has been in the news for the capital club in recent days. In England and then in France now, the Portuguese is quoted on the side of Chelsea, who would be ready to offer him an annual salary of eight million euros to direct the sports policy of the London team.
In its edition of the day, Le Parisien dwells on the circle of influence of the Lusitanian decision-maker, who has surrounded himself with several personalities (more or less known) from the world of football during his career. José Mourinho is notably mentioned there, the AS Roma technician having been quickly announced among the contenders for the succession of Mauricio Pochettino before seeing the rumors die out. The Portuguese has surrounded himself with two trusted men this summer at PSG with Christophe Galtier, with whom he exchanges everything, and Olivier Gagne, responsible for “eyes and ears” of Luis Campos, a bit like Angelo Castelazzi with Leonardo during the last mandate.
With Campos, Jorge Mendes back in business
In the agent department, Le Parisien reviews the fusional relationship between Luis Campos and Jorge Mendes. The representative of Cristiano Ronaldo in particular has been omnipresent this summer for PSG. From Vitinha to Renato Sanches via Warren Zaire-Emery’s first professional contract, the one who is considered the most powerful adviser in the world has been part of Luis Campos’ privileged networks for several years now.
Close to Mino Raiola, who died last April, Luis Campos also keeps strong ties with the entourage of the Italian-Dutch agent. Both sides are already working on Marco Verratti’s extension. The opportunity to realize that the influences of the former leader of Monaco and LOSC already gravitate around the capital.
