Chelsea’s search for a new sporting director continues as they look around the world for options, and one of the names they would love to lure to Stamford Bridge is Sevilla’s Monchi, sources have told 90min.

The 54-year-old has spent nearly 30 years as a player and executive with Sevilla, with the only time away from the club being two years with Roma between 2017 and 2019.

Monchi, long considered one of football’s finest sporting directors, has regularly been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past and has previously held talks with Manchester United and Arsenal.
