Football – Mercato – PSG
New leader of PSG, Luis Campos has been officially appointed football advisor to the capital club. The Portuguese will be in particular in charge of recruitment. It must be said that in the past, the skills of Luis Campos on the transfer market did not go unnoticed, especially when he was posted to AS Monaco and LOSC. Le10sport.com invites you to find its five most beautiful shots.
talent scout, Luis Campos has done wonders in particular LOSC as evidenced by the recruitment of Rafael Leao. As a connoisseur of the Portuguese market, Fields does not ignore the situation of the Sporting CP and decides to dig into the Lisbon club by recruiting this young 19-year-old striker who has very little reference at the top level. Rafael Leao therefore arrives free in Lille where there will only be one season since in 2019, theAC Milan don’t hesitate to drop 30M€ to recruit him. A nice added value for Lille who had paid nothing for his signature, but also a great deal for the Lombard club since Rafael Leao was named best player Serie A and largely contributed to the title acquired by theAC Milan.

During his career, Luis Campos has not only succeeded in unearthing unknown talents, but he also manages to be convincing, like the transfer of Nicolas Pepe in 2017. Brilliant with Angers, the Ivorian winger caught the eye of many clubs, but that’s good Luis Campos who gets his hands on this nice shot for 18M€. At LOSC, Nicolas Pepe will confirm all his talent by scoring no less than 37 goals in 79 appearances. Benefits that will get him signed in the Premier League where Arsenal does not hesitate to drop 80M€ to complete his transfer in 2019.
Another quality of Luis Campos : anticipation. The Portuguese leader is always one step ahead and this is how the departure of Nicolas Pepe is quickly compensated by the transfer of Victor Osimhen. During the summer of 2019, the Nigerian striker arrived from Charleroi where he piled up the goals. the LOSC don’t hesitate to drop 22M€ to recruit him. A choice that the Mastiffs will not regret since Victor Osimhen will quickly make Nicolas Pépé forget by scoring 18 goals for his first… and only season. In fact, the following summer Naples will sign a check for 75M€ to secure the services of the native of Lagos. In one year, Luis Campos will therefore have allowed the LOSC to recover €155 million with Nicolas Pepe and Victor Osimhen. True to his reputation, the Portuguese leader had also anticipated this departure since it is jonathan david who will land in 2022.
But it’s not just the LOSC who was able to benefit from the talent of Luis Campos. Between 2013 and 2016, the Portuguese will build a colossal project that will allow theAS Monaco to build a formidable team with unknown players. This is how in 2013 Luis Campos recruited a totally unknown midfielder who belonged to Rio Ave : Fabinho. The Brazilian was coming out of a season on loan at real Madrid where he essentially evolved with the reserve. Former recruiter real Madrid, Luis Campos then decides to come to Monaco with Fabinho loaned for two seasons before a final transfer in 2015 for €6m. A magnificent blow since the Brazilian quickly established himself as a reference to his position to the point of being one of the essential pawns of the title acquired in 2017. Coveted by the PSGhe will finally commit to liverpool in 2018 for €45M where Fabinho is now an essential pawn of the system of Jurgen Klopp.
Always on the side ofAS Monacoin 2014, Luis Campos recruits another stranger: Bernardo Silva. Aged 20, this Portuguese midfielder has only played 3 games with the first team of Benfica, his training club. But it doesn’t get cold Luis Campos, quite the contrary. And quickly, Bernardo Silva will stand out as a wonderful find. The Portuguese, very versatile, will be one of the essential elements of the group of Leonardo Garden titled in 2017. His talent does not escape Pep Guardiola who does not hesitate to have 50M€ disbursed to Manchester City to recruit him in 2017. And five years later, Bernardo Silva is still an important player for the Spanish technician.
