Villas-Boas on Madrid’s list

Tottenham Hotspur Coach Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly a third candidate to take over at Real Madrid for next season.

The Portuguese tactician is a former member of Jose Mourinho’s backroom staff at Porto, Chelsea and Inter.

Since 2009, he has been working in his own right and gained attention at Porto in the 2010-11 season as Coach, winning a treble and finishing the League campaign unbeaten.

After an unsuccessful stint at Chelsea, the 35-year-old took up post at Tottenham last summer.

However, it is seen that Madrid are considering making a move for him this summer, as they search for a replacement for the departing Mourinho.

Carlo Ancelotti is widely considered to be in pole position, with Jupp Heynckes lined up as a plan B, but AS report that AVB is seen as in the running.
