Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Barca ready to offload Coutinho to Newcastle
Liverpool official Michael Edwards will not be joining RB Leipzig as sporting director, the Bundesliga side’s CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has confirmed.
The Reds’ transfer guru had been linked with the vacant position in Germany in August, with Edwards’ current contract set to run down at the end of the season.
Mintzlaff, however, had said that such a move is not on the cards, telling DAZN: “Michael Edwards will not be our sporting director.
“The fact is that we are looking for a sporting director who fits the club, our philosophy and direction.”
