Former Liverpool transfer chief Michael Edwards turns down Chelsea job in major Blues blow

Chelsea ‘suffer a major blow in their pursuit of a new sporting director, as former Liverpool transfer chief Michael Edwards turns down the job’ to take a year-long break after ending 11-year Anfield stay this summer

  • Former Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards has ruled out Chelsea move
  • Blues owner Todd Boehly has been on the trail of Edwards since leaving Anfield
  • Edwards forged his reputation at Liverpool as an expert negotiator

Former Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards has reportedly ruled out a move to Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Todd Boehly has been on the trail of Edwards since he left Anfield at the end of last season, as he searches for the best way to fill the void left by Marina Granovskaia’s exit.

New co-owner Boehly has boldly shouldered the responsibility of leading Chelsea’s hectic summer of transfer business, with head coach Thomas Tuchel also playing an active role.

Edwards forged his reputation at Liverpool as an expert negotiator and clinical closer of deals, at the head of a team blending data and eyes-in-the-stand scouting operations with the demands of manager Jurgen Klopp and the club’s financial limitations.

After their success in recent years, little wonder he figures so prominently on Boehly’s list.

Although Edwards previously made it clear when he quit after a decade at Anfield that he planned to take a break for up to a year to refresh and recharge before embarking on his next challenge.

It has, however, been revealed that Chelsea will need to look elsewhere, as Edwards has turned down the potential opportunity, according to The Athletic.
