Real Madrid are reportedly set to appoint Luis Campos as their sporting director as they look to boost their transfer activity in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Campos worked at Monaco when they reached the Champions League semi-finals in 2017, and is being linked with a switch to Los Blancos due to his close connection with France striker, Kylian Mbappe.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker has been linked to the Madrid as they look to boost up their striking options as they look to restore themselves to the pinnacle of European football.

According to Goal, the LaLiga giants and Campos, who worked in a scouting and tactical analyst role for them under Jose Mourinho, have been ongoing for at least two months.

Madrid confirmed Zinedine Zidane's departure earlier this week, after a disappointing trophyless season, that saw his side miss out on the LaLiga title to Atletico Madrid. Campos is reportedly on good terms with Madrid president Florentino Perez and general director Jose Angel Sanchez, since Jose Mourinho was in charge of the club.

Campos oversaw the signings of Benjamin Andre, Jonathan Bamba, Tiago Djalo, Jos Fonte, Jonathan Ikone, Renato Sanches, Boubakary Soumare, and Burak Yilmaz, whilst also securing sizable transfer fees for Nicolas Pepe, Victor Osimhen, and Rafael Leao.
