Re Villas-Boas has hinted he could quit Marseille just six months into his reign after former West Ham chief Paul Aldridge was hired as a 'special advisor'.

Aldridge, who was infamously involved in the controversial signings of Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano at West Ham, has joined the French club with a remit to sell players to the Premier League despite Villas-Boas publicly stating he does not want anyone to be sold this month.

Jacques-Henri Eyraud did not inform Villas-Boas about Aldridge's appointment and has revealed he has since received death threats with the former Chelsea boss clearly angered by the situation.



Villas-Boas has guided Marseille to second in the Ligue 1 table behind Paris Saint-Germain, but hinted that his future could lie elsewhere after Eyraud seemingly acted against his wishes by appointing Aldridge.

Aldridge, who also worked at Sheffield Wednesday, helped broker deals to bring Tevez and Mascherano to West Ham in 2006, a move which subsequently cost the club a record £5.5million in fines.

West Ham were deemed to have broke third-party ownership rules to acquire the two Argentine players and also had to fork out £20m in compensation in an out-of-court settlement to Sheffield United after an FA tribunal deemed they played significant roles in keeping the club up back in the 2006-07 season.

Hiroki Sakai is one senior player who has been linked with a move to England with Jose Mourinho reportedly wanting to sign him for Tottenham while there are already plans for key man Florian Thauvin to be put up in the shop window in the summer.
