Roma set sights on Villas-Boas

Updated: May 3, 2012

A.S. Roma are looking towards Andre Villas-Boas as the man to lead their Serie A tilt next season after speculation that informal talks between the two parties have already taken place.

Villas-Boas, who was relieved of his duties at Chelsea earlier this season, is still regarded as one of Europe’s most promising young coaches, after doing the Portuguese League and Cup double in 2011 at FC Porto. He capped that season off by adding the Europa League before joining the Pensioners at the start of this season.

Roma looked to Luis Enrique, the former Barcelona playmaker, as the man to manage the Giallorossi this term but has failed to live up to expectations in the Italian capital.

AVB has also attracted interest from Inter Milan but it is believed that officials at the Stadio Olimipico have already had preliminary talks with the Portuguese manager.

Roma currently lie in seventh place in Serie A.
