£28M Villa-Boas joins Chelsea as most expensive coach in history

New Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas' contract is worth a cool £15 million.

The London Evening Standard says the 33-year-old, who will be the youngest boss in the Premier League, signed a three-year, £5million deal after Chelsea agreed to pay Porto £13.3m to release him from his contract with the Portuguese champions.

The inexperienced Villas-Boas won the domestic double and Europa League with Porto last season in his first full season as a manager.

Villas-Boas returns to Stamford Bridge having worked as a scout for Jose Mourinho between 2004 and 2007. He then followed his compatriot to Inter Milan before taking charge of Academica in the Portuguese league.
