Porto: nothing has been agreed with Chelsea
Porto have told the Portuguese Stock Exchange that no club has yet met the release clause for Andre Villas-Boas, amid reports he is set to join Chelsea. The Portuguese champions have already confirmed that their coach has a €15million (£13.2m) release clause in his contract, and if that is met they cannot stop him leaving. And Portuguese reports insist that Villas-Boas has already agreed terms with Chelsea ahead of a move to West London. But Porto have stated that no agreement is in place, commenting: "Futebol Clube do Porto, hereby informs the market that the coach Andre Villas-Boas, as well as several players in the squad, has a termination clause. To date, this company has not received any communication that this clause will be exercised."
