Chelsea defender could be used as makeweight in playmaker deal

Alex has already handed in a transfer request to ChelseaChelsea FC may use current centre-back Alex as a makewight as they try to land Krasic from Serie A side Juventus.

The Brazilian defender recently handed in a transfer request, rumoured to be due to fancying a warmer climate and with the West London side keen to land the Juve playmaker, Turin could be tempting to Alex for a switch.

Although Turin is perhaps not the warmest of Italian cities it could suit the player and with Chelsea looking to land 27 year old Krasic it would seem to make sense.

The agent of Milos Krasic has already claimed that he will be leaving the club this January with interest confirmed by both Chelsea and some fellow Italian sides. Although his value is not of the meteoric levels one has expected with Chelsea over the years his ability will be considered as required with the Stamford Bridge squad.

With Chelsea close to sealing a move for Bolton’s Gary Cahill, and Krasic’s arrival very likely, the New Year may bring better fortunes for Andre Villas Boas than the first hald of the season.
