The answer to that question depends on which newspaper you read with some sections of the media claiming that the appointment of Andre Villas-Boas is set to be announced while others report that the issue is far from settled and are even introducing new names into the mix.
According to the Evening Standard, AVB has now turned down the ongoing approach from Sao Paulo and has held talks with Daniel Levy this week with a view to signing a three year deal.
Elsewhere however, the name of Didier Deschamps has emerged with reports that the Frenchman is on the point of walking out on Marseille.
As far as the betting is concerned, AVB is as short as 1/8 with some bookmakers with Deschamps out at 66/1. The latter suggestion therefore seems unlikely but could the story finally be finalised before the end of this week?
