Luis Campos has unearthed five of the best players in the Newcastle and Manchester United transfer market.


Luis Campos has unearthed five of the best players in the Newcastle and Manchester United transfer rumours.

After a three-year stint as Lille’s director of football, Luis Campos recently stepped down.

Manchester United and Newcastle United are in very different stages of the season right now, despite some similarities.

Man United is in a desperate attempt to avoid relegation, while Newcastle has recently received a massive cash injection in an attempt to restore their glory days.

Both clubs are in need of a director of football, and ex-Lille and Monaco player Luis Campos has been linked.

Express Sport looks at five of the best players he helped develop during his time at the French club.

Manchester United would benefit greatly from a Fabinho-style midfielder.

The Brazilian has established himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the world since joining Liverpool in 2018 from Monaco, where he was brought in by Campos.

With United leaking goals due to a lack of presence in the engine room recently, Campos’ knowledge could be crucial to the Red Devils.

The press was skeptical of Martial’s arrival in Manchester as a 19-year-old.

He made an immediate impression in Manchester, scoring 79 goals in 265 games for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

And if Campos joins United, he may be able to find the next Martial (whom he originally signed for Monaco) for a fraction of the price.

When the news of Newcastle’s takeover first broke, speculation about Mbappe was rampant.

Campos was already in Monaco when Mbappe arrived, but he persuaded the star to stay, earning £166 million when he was eventually sold to PSG.

Regardless of their wealth, both clubs would be set for a bright future if they made that much money.

Silva arrived at Man City from Monaco as a relative unknown, with many doubting his abilities after failing to make the Portugal national team during their Euro 2016 triumph.

His move to City and subsequent work under Pep Guardiola has greatly improved the midfielder, who was named Player of the Year by City in 2019.

And, for example, finding world-class talents like Silva.
