Villas-Boas wants Porto pair Falcao AND Moutinho at Chelsea

Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Moutinho is wanted at Chelsea. The Mirror says Andre Villas-Boas, who has resigned as Porto coach today, will bring with him to Chelsea several members of his staff and playing squad.

Sources in Porto suggested this morning that Villas-Boas plans to bring two members of his coaching staff, physical trainer Jose Mario Rocha and opposition scout Daniel Sousa, with him when he agrees the three-year deal worth £6.2m per season.

He is also keen to persuade Roman Abramovich to sign £26.5m Colombian striker Radomel Falcao and Portuguese schemer Joao Moutinho, likely to cost around £15m, so that he has two players who already know his coaching methods.
