Chelsea boss pledged 80m GBP kitty

New Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has been promised an enormous 80m GBP transfer kitty as his preparations for the new campaign get underway. Roman Abramovich has told the Portuguese coach that top priority must be to wrestle the Premiership trophy back from rivals Man Utd.

A report indicates that an 80m war chest has been promised to the former Porto coach; who has told Abramovich that a raid on his former club may be a possibility. The Blues have been linked with transfer moves for Colombian striker Falcao and Brazilian star Hulk; both valued in the region of 15m GBP.

Also, with Didier Drogba, John Terry and Frank Lampard now expected to play less games, the Chelsea boss has been told to find long term replacements.
