Chelsea outbid Manchester United to land Porto fullback Jose Bosingwa yesterday.

The Sun says Chelsea beat United to the signature of £16.5million Bosingwa by offering almost TWICE as much pay as the champions did.

The Portugal right-back will complete his switch from Porto today and sign a four-year deal paying £80,000 a week.

United - who saw him as a successor to Gary Neville - offered £50,000.
