**Update** Boas' agent is giving the proverbial ' my client would be honored to work with___' spin. So, for the moment, it appears the reports of a deal were premature. Stay tuned.**
Multiple media outlets are reporting that Andre Villas-Boas is set to take over for Luis Enrique, who has reportedly informed the Roma brass he will not return for the 2012-2013 season.

It appears that this most trying of seasons, replete with heart breaking losses, questionable substitutions and general tactical inefficiencies, has taken its toll on Enrique, who is reportedly burnt out and exhausted from his first season on the peninsula.
So it seems, at least at this point in the story, that Andre Villas-Boas will be the new man in charge, with multiple reports reporting a deal is already in place, while others claim that Baldini is still trying to persuade Enrique to stay in the fold.
Villas-Boas, 34, has prior top flight experience with both Porto and Chelsea, winning multiple trophies at the former.
So while we wait for official confirmation, readers of CDT, what are your thoughts?
