Andre Villas-Boas Set For Marseille Job

Andre Villas-Boas has reportedly taken a step closer to completing his return to management by agreeing a contract with Marseille.

The former Tottenham and Chelsea boss has not had a managerial job since November 2017 after leaving Shanghai SIPG and he had been linked with Celtic.

But he now seems set to take the helm at the Stade Velodrome.

According to France Football, Villas-Boas and Marseille sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta have settled on a two-year deal worth £6.35million per season before tax.

France Football claim that the only detail left to be finalised is how many members of backroom staff Villas-Boas is allowed to bring with him.

The 41-year-old will earn slightly less than in his previous two roles. He was said to be on £7.5m per year at Zenit Saint Petersburg, before leaving in 2016, and more than £10.5m while in China with Shanghai.
