Ex Chelsea manager targeted by AC Milan

Ex Chelsea manager Andre Villas Boas has been targeted by AC Milan to replace first team coach Christian Brocchi, who asked to leave his job yesterday to be able to join Brescia, in the Italian Serie B, and that started to work at the club only in January, when former coach Sinisa Mihajlovic was sacked.

Milan are in a very delicate moment of their history: the financial situation is not good and the long time chairman, Silvio Berlusconi, has been looking for a group of new investors outside of Italy, especially in China, to sell the club but had no luck until now.

The Italian side, that won seven Champions League, also failed to qualify for any European competition in the last three years and the situation is very unstable.

Signing a young and valid manager like Villas Boas they would try to improve this delicate situation and it should a good chance for the Portuguese coach as well, after failing his first experience in a big international club like Chelsea and three years in the Russian championship with Zenit St Petersburg.
