Touted for Madrid
The future of the talents spotter at Lille Luis Campos has been of much debate and conjecture over the last few weeks. Significantly since the end of the Ligue 1 season in which Lille were victorious over PSG in the title race winning their first title since the early 2010s.
Much of that victory was down to some of the players of whom Campos had identified and brought into the club.
He is also credited with unearthing the likes of Kylian Mbappe from his time at Monaco too. They too won the Ligue title.
He is now leaving Lille to face a new challenge and some reports had linked him to the job at Real Madrid.

However, this now seems not to be the case.
It was a Nice idea
Instead, it appears that Luis Campos will take up residency at yet another club in the French top tier.
He is suggested to be approaching a deal with Nice.
French journalist Romain Collet-Gaudin reported that Campos would arrive at the club with the task of sorting out their recruitment.

This is not the only individual from Lille could lose to Nice. Head coach Christophe Galtier who steered the side to the title last season has also been courted by Nice.
In fact, Lille have reportedly wrote to Nice ‘concerning their conduct with Christophe Galtier.’
He is still expected to take over at the south coast club.
