***New Chelsea Manager - Andre Villas-Boas***

Chelsea 'agree deal' with Porto's André Villas-Boas over manager's job'

• André Villas-Boas 'has accepted Chelsea offer'
• Roman Abramovich said to have offered coach €5m a year



Chelsea have agreed to pay the release clause for the Porto manager André Villas-Boas, according to reports in Portugal, and the coach has accepted the Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's offer.

Villas-Boas will earn €5m (£4.4m) a season, the exact salary José Mourinho earned at the west London club, according to Jornal de Notícias. Chelsea will also pay the €15m (£13.2m) release clause.

Villas-Boas has already informed Porto of his decision to leave for the English club, a source linked to the process told the Agência.

On Sunday the Porto president Pinto da Costa said that "if a club pay the €15m and if he wants to leave FC Porto can't do anything about it. Apparentely, André Villas-Boas is willing to leave the 'dream job' [a reference to how Pinto da Costa described his position at Porto] to go to London and work at club where he was with José Mourinho".

Villas-Boas led Porto to the domestic double and Europa League success last term and Chelsea are looking to fill the vacancy created by the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti at the end of last season.

Abramovich may leave €45m in the coffers at Porto's Dragão stadium. According to A Bola, the Chelsea owner wants to take Falcao to London as a sweetener for Villas-Boas's signature.

Chelsea have also been in negotiations with Guus Hiddink about returning to the club he briefly managed in 2009. Chelsea have been talking with Hiddink about taking either the coach's job or the sporting director role – should he take on the latter then there would also be room for Villas-Boas to take a position at the club.

Yup, congrats. You're paying the full 15m release clause and making him the second highest paid manager in the world after Mourinho.

he won kind of second rate Treble in his first season being just 33 and deserves to cost 15mil. If he really comes to Chelsea we are waiting you on 24th.

nothing official yet and still in talks, control yourselves lol


Porto coach Villas-Boas in Chelsea talks
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chelsea are on the brink of appointing treble-winning FC Porto coach Andre Villas-Boas as their new manager, according to Portuguese news agency Lusa.

Villas-Boas, who won the 2010-11 Portuguese League, Portuguese Cup and the UEFA Europa League in his debut season as a manager, has a €15 million release clause in his contract that Chelsea have agreed to pay.

Porto president Pinta da Costa said on Monday the club were powerless to prevent Villas-Boas from leaving should those financial conditions be met.

He said: "If someone deposits €15million into our account and he wants to go, we cannot do anything because it is something that is contractually specified.''

Villas-Boas, 33, became the youngest coach to win a European trophy when his Porto side beat Braga 1-0 in Dublin at the end of last season and was immediately linked with a move to one of Europe's biggest clubs.

On Sunday, Inter Milan ruled out a move for the highly-rated coach. "Villas-Boas had this clause that we certainly were not going to tackle," Inter president Massimo Moratti said.

Chelsea have been searching for a new manager since dispensing with Carlo Ancelotti on May 22 and it was thought that Turkey coach Guus Hiddink, who won the FA Cup as temporary Blues boss in 2009, was first choice to replace the Italian.

However, Villas-Boas, a former assistant to Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, now seems destined to follow in the footsteps of his mentor, with whom he has been favourably compared.

During his time as part of Chelsea coaching team from 2004 to 2007, Villas-Boas was responsible for putting together the detailed technical reports on every opponent that was one of the hallmarks of Mourinho's reign.

if Hiddink is not available, i see him as the best choice, we can do with some new ambitious managers like when Jose came to us...



Chelsea to appoint Porto coach Andre Villas-BoasBBC Sport

Villas-Boas led Porto to Europa League glory last season Porto coach Andre Villas-Boas looks set to join Chelsea following the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti in May.

The 33-year-old Villas-Boas guided Porto to the Europa League title last season.

The Portuguese has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave Porto should another club offer £13.2m for his services.

In a statement, Porto said they had yet to receive an offer that activated the release clause.

"So far this club has not received any communication that this clause has been exercised, nor of the agreement of the coach that is desired," the statement read.

Chelsea said they hope to make an announcement about their new manager in the next few days.

Porto president Pinto da Costa said the club could not prevent Villas-Boas leaving should certain financial conditions be met.

"Villas-Boas has a contract and a clause of 15m euros," he confirmed. "If someone deposits 15m euros into our account and he wants to go, we can not do anything because it is something that is contractually specified."

A Chelsea statement said: "We hope to be able to make an announcement regarding the new manager in the next few days or so, but until then we will not be commenting further on the speculation surrounding that appointment."

Porto also clinched a domestic double under Villas-Boas last season, winning the league and the league cup.

Guus Hiddink has also been linked with a return to Chelsea, where he won the FA Cup as a caretaker manager in 2009.

Villas-Boas, who speaks fluent English, was a scout for Mourinho at both Chelsea and at Inter Milan.

He also worked with Sir Bobby Robson during the former England manager's spell in charge of Porto.

Porto ended last season unbeaten in league with 27 wins in 30 matches, becoming only the second Portuguese club to finish a league season unbeaten, after Benfica in 1972-73.

Ancelotti was sacked by Chelsea following a season without any silverware, with the London club finishing runners-up to Manchester United in the Premier League.

BBC doesn't write things for fun. And all the portuguese media are reporting the same.

If we appoint AVB as manager and Hiddink as Director of Football, it will be the business of the summer. Absolutely dream team!

A Bola says Andre Villas Boas' deal is done and dusted. The only point remaining is Roman paying the 15 milion euros on his clause.

Very interesting days ahead. Even hours.

Seems that everyone has a price these days. With that said, I hope Villas-Boas succeeds at Chelsea, he'll probably try to bring Hulk or Falcão with him.

He's not younger than Drogba. Villas-Boas born in 1977 and Drogba or Lampard in 1978. The only player in our current squad who is older than Andre is Hilario (1975).

You're taking two players along with AVB.

Names being mentioned are Falcao, Moutinho, Fernando, Rolando... no Hulk, though.

Source?

No to Rolando, we have enough central defenders. Falcao is an amazing striker, but we were supposed to sign Romelu Lukaku... From all the players there I would get Moutinho. Villas-Boas has got the best of him.

Maybe we will get Lukaku and loan him. But nobody knows, Roman and their men always have surprises to the world.

Anybody saw this coming?
