Chelsea find Emenalo replacement: Luis Campos - the man who built Monaco

Chelsea have identified Luis Campos as a potential replacement for Michael Emenalo.

Emenalo resigned as technical director at Chelsea last week after ten years with the club.

The Sunday Times says Chelsea want to replace the Nigerian with Campos, who is currently in charge at Lille.

However, the Portuguese's real claim to fame was his work with Monaco, where he brought Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar, Anthony Martial, Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Fabinho all to the club at different levels.

It's estimated that his work resulted in the club grossing £318.4million in revenue.

Campos left the Principality last year to join up with fellow French top-flight outfit Lille, he is open to leaving and joining the Premier League champions.

The 53-year-old worked alongside current Manchester United boss and former Chelsea chief Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid earlier in his career.
