Villas Boas set for Roma switch?

Reports from Portugal are suggesting that Andre Villas Boas will replace Luis Enrique at Roma over the summer.

The Spaniard signed a two-year contract with the Giallorossi in 2011 after being charged with the task of delivering a new brand of football in Rome.

The club have constantly backed the tactician this season, but a slump in results have seen the fans lose patience.

Enrique said earlier this week that we was certain of what he wanted to do at the end of the season, fuelling speculation that he will quit.

In his place could arrive Villas Boas, a man who director general Franco Baldini already spoke to last summer.

Villas Boas was offered the Giallorossi bench, but Porto’s financial demands were deemed as excessive and he later joined Chelsea instead.

The Portuguese tactician has since been sacked by the Stamford Bridge outfit.

Valencia are also keen on the 34-year-old, but it seems that the Stadio Olimpico outfit may be in pole position for the job should it become available.
