Michael Edwards has turned down Chelsea sporting director opportunity

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

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.
