Maxwell considered at Chelsea for football director role

Chelsea are considering a move for Paris Saint-Germain assistant sporting director Maxwell.

Chelsea's new owners have shuffled managing director Marina Granovskaia and technical adviser Petr Cech out of the club recent weeks.

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano is reporting American billionaire Todd Boehly has set sights on former Barcelona star Maxwell, along with three other targets.

Maxwell, 40, has occupied the assistant sporting director role at PSG since 2017, and has helped bring in the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi, and Achraf Hakimi.

The LA Dodgers owner is also said to be eyeing former Liverpool transfer guru Michael Edwards for the role.
