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?
