Porto confirm Villas-Boas clause

Da Costa was asked about his highly-rated coach, who has guided the
club to a treble this season after doing the domestic double,
whilst also scooping the Europa League. Villas-Boas is constantly
being linked with jobs across Europe, most recently Chelsea and
Manchester City, and reports had claimed a release clause was
present. Da Costa has now admitted that such a clause does exist,
telling RTP: “I do not expect the exit of Villas-Boas, there is a
clause price of 15million euros – but I am totally convinced that
even if any club came in with the offer, he would reject the
proposition. “Villas-Boas is very committed to Porto and more so
after this big season. “Two days ago he also told me that if no
players leave, then he will not even need any new players.” On the
player front Porto recently secured leading forward Hulk on a new
long-term deal, which also saw his release clause rise to
€100million. Next on Da Costa’s agenda is leading scorer
Radamel Falcao – whose current deal has a release clause of
30million euros. “This is beig looked at,” he said in reference to
Falcao. “He has already showed a willingness to renew, but he has a
two-year contract so I am not worried.”
