Liverpool have recently seen a player leave for PSG at the end of a season and now it looks as though a member of staff may be about to walk the same path.
We all know that Michael Edwards is about to leave through the Anfield exit door and his work at the club has been nothing short of incredible but his next destination has not yet been confirmed.
It was widely believed that Newcastle could be the destination of choice, given their influx of money and a personal relationship with Eddie Howe.
However, if these latest reports are to be trusted then it could be another destination with huge amounts of money that could be the new home for our current sporting director.
Whoever gets the opportunity to work with the 42-year-old looks to be in a strong position, whether the loosening of financial shackles will enhance his ability to spot the best players to sign will soon be discovered.
In the meantime, we can be happy that we look to have a good replacement in Julian Ward.
