Villas-Boas is Barca favourite

Speculation is mounting in the Spanish Press that Andre Villas-Boas is the favourite to take over from Tito Vilanova at Barcelona.

The Blaugrana boss resigned from his duties at Camp Nou on Friday following a cancer relapse, with the club confirming that a new man will be appointed next week.

The Tottenham Hotspur Coach is, according to AS, the Catalan side’s number one choice, with the Portuguese tactician having a clause in his contract which allows him to leave for Barca for a fee of around €14m.

Other names being linked with post though, include new Celta Vigo boss Luis Enrique and Marcelo Bielsa.
