After having a somewhat unsuccessful season in the last campaign, Chelsea are trying to recruit a manager capable of emulating the achievements of past managers.
The man that Abromovich sees fit to bring trophies to Stamford Bridge seems to be from the same mould as the 'The Special One' Mourinho. Both having led Portugal giants, Porto to league titles in style.
It is being reported this afternoon that Andre Villas-Boas has resigned from his job at Porto, readying himself for Chelsea to come calling.
The big transfer news this summer up to now is the capture of Bolton's English international Gary Cahill. Newly capped under England boss Fabio Capello, there are a host of top clubs around the world fighting it out for Cahill's signature.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Inter Milan have all shown an interest in becoming the new home of the Centre Back. However, very recently an enthusiastic Harry Redknapp looks to have come in and scuppered any possible move to their rivals by offering Bolton a 17 million pounds offer plus Kaboul.
Some done deals include a permanent switch for Jamie O'Hara from Spurs to Wolves for a deal reported to be around £5mill, Ali Al Habsi from Bolton to Wigan in a similar permanent move worth £4mill.
