Chelsea, Liverpool chasing Real Madrid chief scout Juni Calafat

Real Madrid's chief scout Juni Calafat is wanted by Chelsea and Liverpool.

The Telegraph is reporting that Chelsea, along with Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton "have been considering trying to poach" 45-year-old Calafat.

The Spanish media have already coined the phrase the "Calafat Academy" in recognition of the outstanding work he is doing at the Bernabeu.

His most recent signing was highly-rated Reinier Jesus.

The 18-year-old was touted around Europe's top clubs after helping Flamengo win the Copa Libertadores and the Brazilian top flight last season.
