Chelsea: New manager named in days

Chelsea have announced they could name their new manager as early as this week.

Porto coach Andre Villas-Boas is expected to move to Stamford Bridge once Chelsea meet his €15 million buyout clause.

A Chelsea spokesman said: "We hope to be able to make an announcement regarding the new manager in the next few days or so, but until then we will not be commenting further on the speculation surrounding that appointment."

On Sunday the Porto president, Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa, offered a hint that Villas-Boas would leave by revealing the release clause in his agreement with the club, saying: "Villas-Boas has a contract and a clause of €15m. If someone deposits €15m into our account and he wants to go, we cannot do anything because it is something that is contractually specified."
