Red Bull Salzburg’s sports director Christoph Freund is said to have been targeted by Chelsea. The media report unanimously.
The successes of Red Bull Salzburg’s sporting director Christoph Freund at national and international level should not have gone unnoticed by clubs in Europe. As the media unanimously report, Chelsea are fishing for the Austrian.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reported on Tuesday via Twitter: “Christoph Freund is one of the favorites for the role of sports director at Chelsea. But he is not the only candidate. Talks are currently being held. A final decision will be made in the next few weeks, Boehly (Chelsea’s owner, note) wants a decision that early as possible.” The telegraph and the Independent.
Freund, who brought top talents like Erling Haaland, Benjamin Sesko, Brenden Aaronson, Patson Daka and Karim Adeyemi to Salzburg, is under contract with the Bulls until the summer of 2026. He has been regularly linked with RB Leipzig in recent years, but a deal never materialized.
