Porto coach Andre Villas-Boas looks set to join Chelsea guided Porto to the Europa League title last season

The 33-year-old Porto coach Andre Villas-Boas looks set to join Chelsea following the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti in May for the 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 and 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 and the statement read and the inter Milan have also been linked with Villas-Boas, but the exit clause in his Porto contract proved prohibitive.

Villas-Boas Factfile: Led Porto to league, cup and Europa Cup treble last season and Youngest winner of a European trophy at 33 and the Worked as assistant to Jose Mourinho at Porto, Chelsea and inter milan.

A Chelsea statement said: "We hope to be able to a make an announcement regarding the new manager in a next few days or so, but until then we will not be commenting further on the speculation surrounding that appointment." and Porto also clinched a domestic double under Villas-Boas last season, winning the league and the league cup.
