Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic is believed to be considering bringing back former manager Andre Villas-Boas as a possible replacement for under-fire Jose Moruinho, according to the Metro.
Chelsea’s poor start to the campaign has seen Jose Mourinho’s future at the club hang in the balance, and recent reports have seen the likes of Guus Hiddink, Carlo Ancelotti and Brendan Rodgers all tipped to take over should he be given his marching orders (via Metro).
And now according to Spanish publication Fichajes, Abramovic has already begun to search out possible replacements with ex-manager Andre Villas-Boas believed to be on the shortlist.
The Metro claims that Chelsea paid Porto a reported £13.2million to release AVB from his contract, which is the highest amount of compensation ever paid in football, but sacked him just nine months into the job.
Having turned down a new contract with Zenit St Petersburg recently, Villas-Boas is being tipped to leave Russia at the end of the season with the Metro reporting that he would be keen on a return to the Premier League.
