Paving the way: Villas-Boas resigns as Porto coach

New, comments

It may be time to start getting used to seeing this man on the bench, my fellow Blues:

Porto have confirmed that Villas-Boas has resigned from his position at the club, paving the way for Chelsea (or Inter) to make a move for the 33-year-old (he's the same age as Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard).

Now the €15m release clause needs to be paid, then he can be formally presented at the Bridge just in time for preseason to begin.

Chelsea are expected to make an announcement in the next few days. Maybe now sooner rather than later. Let's get the ball rolling! I'm pumped now.
