Rivals Chelsea make key signing..

Rivals Chelsea have made a key signing by capturing Brazilian defender Alex, subject to the formality of a passing a medical.

Earlier this week the PSV man was at the centre of a giant administration cock-up which eventually saw him returning to his homeland after being interrogated by immigration officials for several hours over his work permit.

The bad news for the rest of the Premier League and indeed Europe is that Alex has now been granted his work permit following an appeal.

The Brazilian defender will make a massive difference to a defence that at times last season looked anything like the one we'd seen in the previous two campaigns while Gallas was still at the club.

Chelsea could yet also sign Feyenoord's Royston Drenthe, if Dutch winger Robben moves to Real Madrid.

Make no mistake Chelsea will be as strong as they've ever been under the stewardship of Jose Mourinho. With rivals Liverpool also making significant signings, many will no doubt be predicting the toughest Premier League to date.
