The New Mourinho

The New Special One?
Chelsea Football club are set to sign Porto boss Villa-Boas within the next hour, despite it being widely thought that Turkey boss Gus Hidink would sign for a second spell at Chelsea.

There has been much speculation as to who would be the next Chelsea boss as many thought that it would be Harry Redknapp but he has shown no interest of leaving Tottenham. It was then thought that Mark Hughes was in the running after leaving Fulham to go to "bigger things" suggesting that he left for Chelsea, however he still finds himself out of work.

This lead fans to believe that Gus Hidink would be back for a second spell having lead Chelsea to an F.A cup win and saying that he would love to be "back in England". However, he did stil say the time is not yet right but the Turkish F.A contradicted him by saying they were shore that he would leave his post to go the Chelsea.

However after a long wait Chelsea will finally have the next boss to take over from Carlo Ancelotti who was sacked after just two years in charge in which time he managed to win the F.A cup and the Premier league. However he failed to find Chelsea their first Champions league title and so lost the job.

At Chelsea there is always speculation that the manager is overridden by Roman Abramovic and it is beleieved that he brought in Torres for £50 million and ordered Ancelotti to play him to make the signing worth while. It has been confirmed that Roman does get involved with transfers at Chelsea after he had a £22 million bid for Modric turned down and the club is in talks with Lukaku despite having no manager.

The 33 year old guided Porto to Europa league victory last season, as Mourinho did with Porto in the champions league before he joined Chelsea. Chelsea are now hoping that he will be the man to finally bring them the European success that Roman has so desperatly waited for.

The Porto man still has years on his contract but the deal has a clause in it which allows him to sign for another club if they pay Porto £13 million which Chelsea have not yet done but intend to do.

A Chelsea statement said: "We hope to be able to make an announcement regarding the new manager in the next few days or so, but until then we will not be commenting further on the speculation surrounding that appointment."

Porto also won a league and cup double last season, wjile Chelsea failed to claim any silverware in a dissapointing season. However the news is not yet finalised and some sceptics are still expecing Hiddink to make a last minute move and become the next boss.

Villa has been at Chelsea before as he was a translater under Jose Mourniho as he can also speak fluent English and taught Mourinho everything he knows about the English language. He also worked with Sir Bobby Robson as a translater during his spell at Porto.

To make his CV even better, Porto finished last season completly unbeaten and in the league won 27 out of 30 games, becoming only the second team ever to be able to finish a season unbeaten.
