Defender On His Way Out

Over the summer months there has been rumour after rumour about who is coming to Chelsea, but today we have heard that a player could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge. That player is Brazilian defender Alex.

Alex started last season alongside John Terry in central defence, and many will remember his stunning free-kick goal against Arsenal in October, but he was injured shortly after and did not return to the side until April.

He is considered to be behind David Luiz in the pecking order now, and Italian side Juventus have expressed an interest in signing him. Juventus have a new manager in Antonio Conte and he is currently looking for new players and Alex is one of those, and according to a report on talkSPORT this morning they are preparing a bid of around £6million for the versatile defender.

Alex is currently under contract for another two years, so £6million for a player who had injury problems last season could be seen as good
business, especially as Chelsea are looking to buy new players, and it would free up some much needed cash, not that Roman Abramovich needs it does he!

    pls chelsea wld sign players

  2. ahmedinho says

    please dont sell alex

  3. Wisdom (Okene) says

    Let Alex go and get Bolton’s Cahill for replacement. Chelsea should get a left back as well. Pls Modric’s deal is very important.

  4. bright says

    pls sell Alex,so that David Luiz will play full time.chelsea need playmake like modric or Juan Mata of Valencia.

    please let alex stay, after all he is still on contract for the club and I think he is good defender, I believe chelsea will not forget the goal he snatched from wayne rooney at old traffod even though we lost he did help to reduce the goals conceded.

    Alex and Zhirkov’s possible departure raises questions about who to keep and who to release. Key to this decision is Chelsea’s youth verses experience debate. Some people have suggested that it’s time to trust our existing crop of young players. I think McEachran, Sturridge and Van Aanholt are the only youngsters that are ready for regular first team involvement. But even they need to be brought in cautiously. It will be a mistake to rely on the slow and experienced players just as it will be to rely on the agile and inexperienced ones. Chelsea must bring in a few young players who are ready-made, as they did with Ramires and David Luiz. Modric is such a player, but one or two more are needed. Real wingers are missing, and Chelsea’s right back position (Bosingwa/Ferriera) remains our weakest area. I agree that a complete team overhaul is unnecessary, but I think the ones I have labelled are important if Chelsea hope to deal with the likes of Man Utd and Barcelona.

    TalkSport are hardly reliable, why would anyone in their right mind sell a top class cb for anything less than £15m anyway.
