Porto chiefs knew Villas-Boas going to Chelsea before last weekend

FC Porto chiefs have already met to draw up a list of replacements for Andre Villas-Boas.

Porto insist Chelsea are yet to meet Villas-Boas' €15 million buyout clause, though privately accept they will lose their coach to the Blues, says A Bola.

Indeed, insiders say Porto's board have already identified the man to succeed Villas-Boas after meeting over the weekend.

The board knows they will face a fans backlash allowing Villas-Boas to leave and hope a big name will ease the tension.
