Is Villas-Boas the man after all?

Sources in Portugal today are claiming that André Villas-Boas has agreed to make the trek over the Channel and join Chelsea.

The Guardian are reporting that Chelsea are prepared to meet the €15m release clause that Porto have set to obtain the services of the young coach.

Porto are, of course, claiming that no such deal is in place, but allegedly Villas-Boas has told them he wants to move on. And Chelsea are keeping their mouths shut.

I must say that I, for one, am surprised at this turn of events as I had just basically gotten used to the idea of having Hiddink back and was planning my "dream" silly summer off of that. But this certainly keeps things interesting.

Thoughts? Does this change things for you at all, if Villas-Boas arrives rather than Hiddink?
