Paul Mitchell will respond to Premier League grandees at the end of the season
RB Leipzig sporting director Paul Mitchell said he would decide on his future after the end of the season.
38-year-old Mitchell is a talented scout with coaching ambitions. Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are seriously interested in him.
All three of the Premier League clubs are in search of a sporting or technical director and are ready to offer a job to their compatriot, who previously worked for Southampton and Tottenham.
However, RB Leipzig are trying to keep Paul by offering him a new contract until 2025 with an increased salary and extended powers. Mitchell has an important choice to make, but he won’t be in a hurry.
According to him, he has a contract until 2020 and he will definitely work it out. Nevertheless, he will decide on his future this summer. Mitchell likes the way he is treated at Leipzig and he adores his work, but so far he cannot say anything concrete.
