Sacking Ancelotti will cost Chelsea over £20M

The dismissal of Carlo Ancelotti is set to cost Chelsea an amazing £20 MILLION.

The London Evening Standard says Chelsea are willing to pay the £13.2 million buyout clause of Porto coach Andre Villas-Boas' contract.

Villas-Boas's arrival would take the cost of replacing Ancelotti to nearly £20m after the Italian was sacked last month and paid £6m for the final year of his contract.

Roman Abramovich has stumped up more than £40m in pay-offs to managers during eight years at the club but is understood to have few qualms about matching Porto's inflated price.
