According to Spanish daily 'Sport', Chelsea have submitted an offer to secure the services of former Barcelona technical secretary Txiki Begiristain.

The 45-year-old is a former Barcelona player and Spanish international. He was brought into the Nou Camp as technical secretary in 2003 in order to end a barren four seasons without a trophy and has since helped bring incredible success for the Catalans. Begiristain has overseen the transfers of influential stars such as Ronaldinho and Samuel Eto'o during his time at the Nou Camp.

His last contribution to the club was the summer signing of David Villa . Begiristain left the Nou Camp following the end of Joan Laporta's term as president.

Now, 'Sport' reports that Begiristain has received "a significant offer" from Premier League champions Chelsea to become the club's sporting director.

Chelsea are desperate to capture the Champions League and would hope that Begiristain can help Carlo Ancelotti strengthen his squad in order to do so. The Stamford Bridge club reportedly want an answer from Begiristain by September.

What's the point of that?! If we want a Sporting Director to help the team when it comes to strengthening our squad, surely getting him in before the end of the transfer window makes more sense?

Not sure but he could have a gardening leave clause in his contract which stops him joining any other club until after the window closes .

Would make sense as I am sure he know's who Barca have spoken to and the money on offer

it is almost bound to be what TBB says. No way are Barca going to allow him to move to another club and make deals immediately given the insider knowledge he will have of what they are trying to set up (and of current Barca contracts).
