Bayern Munich are set to turn their attention to Chelsea defender Alex after failing to agree a deal with Jerome Boateng, according to Bild.
The Manchester City defender was keen on the move after a difficult career at Eastlands, where his opportunities have been limited given the form of Pablo Zabaleta.
But Munich, not to be denied, will turn their attention to Chelsea'sAlex, who is reportedly keen on the move.
Chelsea brought in David Luiz during the January transfer window and since,Alex's opportunities have been limited at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian moved to Chelsea from PSV Eindhoven in 2004, but spent three years on loan at the Dutch side until 2007.
