Alex Teixeira Off To Chelsea? The Latest Development

 PSG coach, Laurent Blanc has expressed his admiration for Shakhtar Donetsk forward, Alex Teixeira and the Frenchman admitted he would be pleased to see the Brazilian play for his side and that a deal could be reached in the January transfer window.

Blanc said they have been monitoring the situation around this in-form forward just like other top teams. Though the 25-year old has confirmed interest from Chelsea, the prospects of playing alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovich, Edison Cavani, Angel do Maria, Thiago Silva, fellow Brazilian David Luis and other top players could make him head to the French capital.

Having won the French Ligue 1 consecutively for some years now, the French champions are looking to fortify their team so as to win the UEFA Champions League. The likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid are the favourites to lift the UEFA Champions league.

With this news, Paris Saint Germaine could be heading into a double battle with Chelsea FC as they have been drawn to face each other in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions league next February. The first leg of this second round tie is meant to be held in Paris while Chelsea will host the second leg at the Stamford Bridge. It should be recalled that PSG sent Chelsea out of the UEFA champions league last season following a 2-2 draw at the Stamford Bridge after a 1-1 draw at the Parc de Prince in Paris.
