Chelsea will pay 13.3 million pounds (21.5 million) buyout clause of his contract at the club Portugal. "André was the outstanding candidate for the job", the London club issued a statement on its website ( "One of the most talented young technicians of football today and has already achieved much in a relatively short space of time," he continued.
