UK press: Abramovich wants Dutch master for Chelsea

There are reports in the British media that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has found a new coach for the club. The Sun newspaper says the Russian tycoon has already offered the job to former Netherlands striker Marco van Basten.

The Dutchman says the offer was made to him over the weekend, when he could be seen sitting beside Abramovich during the Chelsea clash with principal rivals Manchester United.

Abramovich's personal friend, Avram Grant, took charge of the team last week when Jose Mourinho and the club parted company by 'mutual consent'.
