Villas-Boas: Manchester United are our main target

  • @MrMarkFleming

Andre Villas-Boas will challenge his players to topple Manchester United when he meets the first-team squad for the first time.

The new Chelsea manager will hold a team meeting this morning when he will introduce his staff and outline his philosophy. When he took charge of Porto last summer, he made the squad watch a video of Benfica's championship party, which began a season that saw his side win four trophies.

"We just need to make the right moves, maybe a United photo, to show they've been successful. United are the reference – that's pretty clear," Villas-Boas said. Chelsea are to step up their interest in Spurs' Luka Modric this week.
