Gone in 24 hours
Alex looks set to complete his move to Juventus ahead of transfer deadline day which is tomorrow evening.
The Brazil centre-back is desperate to leave west London as he is no longer in Andre Villas-Boas’s long-term plans and sees a move to Italy as a surefire way to restart his international career.
Alex has played 111 games for the Blues following his signing in 2007 after a loan spell in Holland with PSV.
He scored 10 goals for the Blues – many long-range bullet free-kicks.
But the signing on international team mate David Luiz effectively has ended his SW6 career.
