Chelsea have taken a major step forward in their bid to sign Alex by applying for a work permit.

The Brazilian arrived at Heathrow Airport on Sunday to discuss personal terms and was cleared to enter the country. However, after a small delay, he opted to return home voluntarily - scotching suggestions that he had been barred from the UK.

A statement issued by Chelsea said: "Alex was due to arrive into England on Sunday to discuss personal terms. Chelsea Football Club are in the process of applying for a work permit for the player in line with normal football and employment procedure."
