Villas-Boas led Marseille to the Champions League for the first time in seven years with Ligue 1 ended early amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Portuguese tactician has ambitions beyond that however, and has called on Les Phocéens to support him in strengthening his squad.
Speaking to RMC Sport, AVB said: “I don’t want (Marseille) to just make up the numbers in the Champions League.
“If we’re just here to make up the numbers, it’s obviously no (to staying at OM).”
Villas-Boas wants assurances that he and his support staff still hold the power to make the big decisions.
“The most important thing is whether the people who are with me, (sports director) Andoni (Zubizarreta) and (scouting director) Albert (Valentin) still have power or not.
“We must have, and we want to have, the power to execute decisions.
“I feel good in Marseille. When my agent calls me with Premier League proposals, I don’t want to go back. I am happy here. But if the conditions for us to do a proper job are not met, it’s not worth it.”
Not only does the 42-year-old former Chelsea manager want to strengthen his squad, but hold on to key performers.
“I want to know where we’re going, what we can do, how much we can invest,” he said.
“We don’t have a big squad. We must think about the players whose contracts expire in 2021.”
Steve Mandanda, Florian Thauvin, Maxime López, Jordan Amavi and Valere Germain are all out of contract next year.
