"Still trying to digest the news that chelsea will pay porto £13 million for a manager. "
According to official statements, he resigned from Porto and his release clause had been triggered. Chelsea then hired him. It's not clear whether Chelsea are playing the amount or whether Villas-Boas agreed to pay it himself.
Either way, exciting times.
"or whether Villas-Boas agreed to pay it himself" - err, just how stupid are you?
"Let me see. I'll pay £13m to be released and then take a job at £4.5m/year for 3 years. Yeh, I'm not very good at finance."
