The agent of former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has hinted of talks with AS Roma.

As Catania are refusing to release Montella from his contract, the Giallorossi appear to be turning their attention back to AVB.

"We are looking for a strong, solid and long-term project," agent Carlos Goncalves told

"Villas Boas would like to return to management in these conditions, but if these components are absent, then he has no problem taking a year out.

"I repeat, we are looking for a sporting structure that is very strong and competitive. We'll see if these conditions can be found at any of the clubs that contact us."

When asked whether he had been in negotiations with Roma director Franco Baldini, Goncalves refused to confirm or deny.

"We don't talk about specific clubs."
