'New Mourinho' agrees deal with Chelsea - reports

Published Add your comment

Chelsea have agreed a deal to bring Porto boss Andre Villas-Boas to Stamford Bridge as the club's new manager, according to Jornal de Notícias.

The west-Londoners have been searching for a new manger since the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti following a trophies season for The Blues.

And despite Guus Hiddink being heavily linked with a return as manager, it seems that Villas-Boas, dubbed the new Mourinho, is to take the reigns at Chelsea.


The 33-year-old has a £13.2 million release clause attached to him, which Chelsea will pay off to ensure the Portuguese boss moves to the Premier League.

Villas-Boas won the domestic double and the Europa League last season and will move to Chelsea and be charged with winning the Champions League, a trophy which has eluded owner Roman Abramovich since he took over the club in 2004.
