Chelsea: We confirm we want Villas-Boas as new manager

Chelsea hope to confirm Andre Villas-Boas as new manager, the club announced last night. Villas-Boas tendered his resignation to Porto yesterday - which have since named Vitor Pereira as their new coach.

Chelsea confirmed their intention to install the 33-year-old as the replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, who was unceremoniously axed at the end of last season just 12 months after guiding the club to a league and FA Cup double.

"We note that the release clause of Andre Villas-Boas has been activated," a Chelsea club statement read.

"We can at this time confirm our interest in him and hope to reach agreement with him on personal terms and make a further announcement in the near future."
