The Celtic team’s discomfort is not because they share a sporting director with one of the strongest teams in the world, but rather because the Portuguese missed an important operation for Mouriño because he was keeping an eye on his other club.
Many know that Luis Campos is the sporting director of RC Celta, but he is also the sporting director of PSG, which is why this controversy arises. Since March 14th last year Portuguese leader took over the transfer department at Galician painting. But four months later he joined the French club’s payroll to carry out the same duties.
Although Campos secured good contracts for RC Celta throughout his tenure, other important assignments failed. This is because the sports director is not 100% committed to Carlos Mouriño’s team. The latest maneuver that failed to materialize could significantly improve Rafa Benítez’s core plan.
The player RC Celta didn’t sign because of Luis Campos
When the 2023 summer market opened its doors, the Galician team pounced on midfielder Batista Mendy. The Madrid coach really liked the young Frenchman’s profile and saw him as the perfect replacement for Peruvian Renato Tapia. Another maneuver was still pending as the Inca player is still in the Celtic squad.
The fact is that Angers SCO, the club of the French giants, was ready to reach an agreement with RC Celta. However, when they saw that Luis Campos did not call the offices of the Les Scoïstes team, they decided to consider the signing closed and not successfully completed. The result was evident in the reaction (anger) of Rafa Benítez himself, who already had Mendy in his plans for 2023-24.
Why didn’t Luis Campos complete Mendy’s arrival at RC Celta?
As we already expected, the Celtic club’s sporting director did not fully participate in the Frenchman’s operation, as he was due for another operation, but it was intended for PSG. It was the French attacker Randal Kolo Muani, who signed for the Parisian team and arrived at the Parc des Princes as the best signing in this market.
In fact, some media in France are talking about the former Frankfurt attacker replacing Kylian Mbappé, who still has the idea of moving to Real Madrid. Finally, Luis Campos focused on what was actually a very important operation and was unable to complete the signing of Batista Mendy for RC Celta. Currently, Mouriño has not declared whether he will continue with his current sports director or not.
