Crystal Palace co-owner Blitzer to offer plum job to ex-Chelsea scouting chief McLachlan

Former Chelsea scouting chief Scott McLachlan is set to be offered a plum job by Crystal Palace co-owner David Blitzer.

The Sun says Blitzer wants someone to lead his growing football group — with clubs in Germany, Spain and Belgium as well as Real Salt Lake in MLS.

He is keen to recruit top players for them.

McLachlan is the man he fancies for the role after he left his position at Stamford Bridge.

The Scot was at Chelsea for 11 years and has a big knowledge of foreign players and emerging talent.
