With Raheem Stirling linked to Chelsea, Craig Burley says that USMNT fans need to deal with Christian Pulisic having competition at the club.

(1:32) Chelsea have identified outgoing Liverpool transfer supremo Michael Edwards as the leading candidate to become sporting director at Stamford Bridge, sources have told ESPN, following confirmation that senior executive Marina Granovskaia will leave the club later this summer.

And having built a reputation as one of the most well-connected transfer negotiators in the game, sources have told ESPN that the new Chelsea regime, led by co-owner, and LA Dodgers co-owner, Todd Boehly, want Edwards to head up the club's plans to restructure the technical department following the completion of the takeover from former owner Roman Abramovich earlier this month.

Monaco and Ajax have also been linked with Edwards, but sources have said that a move to Chelsea would hold great appeal.

And although reports have suggested that Manchester United are also interested in hiring Edwards, sources have told ESPN that a move to Old Trafford is unlikely, with John Murtough now heading all of the club's football operations following Ed Woodward's departure as executive vice-chairman in February.

While Boehly is assuming the role of interim sporting director, Chelsea confirmed that Granovskaia would remain available to the club during the current transfer window to help and advise during the transitional period.

But with the Russian-Canadian Granovskaia vacating her role as Chelsea's lead transfer negotiator, sources have said that the club's new owners want to overhaul the recruitment department with a proven figure such as Edwards at the helm.
