Chelsea boss Villas-Boas battling Real Madrid coach Mourinho for Falcao

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is in a battle with Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho for Porto striker Radamel Falcao.

The Sun says both are willing to pay £26.5million to trigger a release clause in the 25-year-old's contract.

That will leave Falcao with a massive decision whether to follow the boss who left his club this week... or join Mourinho at Real Madrid.

It would also be the first clash between the two managers since Villas-Boas started following Mourinho down his managerial path.

They worked together closely and have now, seven years apart, gone from Porto to Chelsea - leaving behind thousands of gutted fans.
