Carlo Ancelotti has been handed a big transfer fund by PSG’s Qatari owners who hope that the recent appointment of a high profile boss will help attract big name players to the Parc des Princes. Alex handed in a transfer request six weeks ago and has been close to securing a deal to move to nearby QPR but appears to have opted intead for a move to the Ligue 1 table toppers.
The 29 year old Brazilian has struggled to get playing time at Stamford Bridge and last January’s signing of David Luiz effectively pushed the former PSV Eindhoven out of the defensive equation and Andre Villas-Boas’s chase for Gary Cahill pretty much sealed the big defender’s fate.
PSG are sitting top of the domestic table and Ancelotti is expected to secure the French capital club’s first title in almost two decades and will then be charged with an assault on the Champions League next term.
Alex has been at Chelsea since 2007, after an initial three year loan spell at PSV, and has notched up 133 appearances for the West London side, collecting a Premier League title and two FA Cup triumphs during his spell at the club.
