Bayern Munich in £12m offer for Chelsea defender

It is being reported that the German giants Bayern Munich are willing to take the brilliant Chelsea defender Alex off the Chelsea bench to give him regular football once more in the Bundesliga.

Alex has been fantastic for Chelsea but has seen his first-team chances decimated after his untimely injuries last season and the arrival of his fellow Brazilian David Luiz in January.

With Chelsea also being linked with a move for another English centre-back like Gary Cahill or Scott Danns he could drop even further down the pecking order, so there is every chance that the Blues could accept a £12m bid from Bayern.

The Mirror also reports that Andre Villas-Boas could return to Porto to bring his old defender Rolando to the Bridge. Rolando is quoted as saying: He said: “I loved working with Villas-Boas at Porto.

“If he wants me, he has my number.”

Would Chelsea fans prefer Gary Cahill or Rolando to replace Alex?

    Alex is Chelsea’s best central defender. He was Guus Hiddink’s number one as well even placing him before John Terry. Chelsea should definately NOT sell Alex. He is a safer central defender than David Luiz and certainly more mobile than Terry. John Terry’s strength lies in his Captaincy and never say die leadership of the team. David Luiz is a fantastic prospect but is also versatile. He should also be used as a defensive midfield player. Branislav Ivanovich plays better as a right back but can also do a central defensive job but Alex is simply a rcck for Chelsea at the back. With the best defence in the Premiership last term Chelsea do not need to look beyond securing a 2nd keeper as back up to Cech. Other areas of the team will be the concern and Bayern told thanks but no thanks! As for your comments of Alex only being a ‘bench’ player now that David Luiz has arrived I think you will find that was more to do with Alex’s fitness coming back from injury than any preferences. Like I said, Alex is simply Chelsea’s finest central defender now and AVB will recognise this fact seeing the players in training.

    I wish that Chelsea could buy Pepe and Di Maria but Cahill is good!

  8. august says

    …………..And we surely need a right back Van Der Wiel? And I don t think it s gonna happend but it would be great to have Maicon in the team!!!!

    cahill and dann are not comin to chelsea,we don’t need average english players.if alex should leave,rolando will be a good replacement.

  10. Da Silva Ibrahim says

    Chelsea should hold onto Alex, He is one of the best central defenders with much experience and always fight for Chelsea at tough times in all competitions. We want Alex with John Terry in the Center back while Unique David Luiz on the Right back and Ashley Cole on the Left back and Ivanovic on the bench is OK for the Blues Defense.

  11. dymajee says

    I think Ronaldo will be okay compare to Cahil

  12. Eben says
