The name of Laurent Busser is not very well known to the general public but in the small world of football, this 49-year-old Frenchman is a big name in his field.
Appointed head of Bayern Munich's recruitment unit in January 2018, Busser is known for spotting young talent and obtaining contracts often to the advantage of his employer.
Obviously, such a CV does not gone unnoticed, especially on the side of the best clubs in the world. This is particularly the case with Newcastle who, according to our sources, are interested in bringing in the Alsatian in order to carry out their new recruitment policy since the club's takeover by the Saudi Public Investment Fund.
However, an agreement will have to be found with the Rekordmeister since the Frenchman is still under contract in Bavaria.
