Blues ready for new Boas

Have your say

Chelsea are set to announce the appointment of Porto’s Andre Villas-Boas as their new manager over the next few days.

Villas-Boas, who will become the Premier League’s youngest manager at 33, resigned as boss of the Portuguese champions yesterday thus triggering the £13 million release clause in his contract.

Porto issued a statement saying that his contract would be cancelled once the “required amount” is paid.

It is expected his first signing will be £25million striker Falcao who scored the winner in the Europa League Final.
