With the recent arrival of its new owner and chairman Todd Boehly, Chelsea is currently experiencing a real revolution. The Blues are restructuring in depth with, in particular, the departure last week of the general manager of the London club, Marina Granovskaia, or that yesterday of the former goalkeeper, Petr Cech, who occupied a post of technical and performance adviser. In this logic of reorganization, the Blues are currently looking for a new sports director and they would have thought of a former Ligue 1 player. The GuardianChelsea would like to recruit the former Paris Saint-Germain left-back, Maxwell, as sporting director.
The 40-year-old Brazilian, who retired in 2017, served as PSG’s sports coordinator after his playing career, before being named the capital’s club ambassador to Brazil in 2019. London club would think of him in particular, because he knows the coach of Chelsea, Thomas Tuchel, with whom he collaborated during the passage of the German technician in Paris.
