Chelsea defender Alex has admitted he would be interested in joining Juventus, but only on a permanent basis as he doubts whether a loan deal could be agreed.

John Terry and David Luiz are set to form Chelsea's first-choice centre-back partnership this season, fuelling speculation that Alex could be allowed to leave.

The Brazilian defender has been linked with a loan move to Juve, but he would prefer to sign a long-term contract with the Italians.

Alex has told his agent that he would be excited about such a transfer and is now waiting to see if the two clubs can sort out something.

"I am aware of Juventus' interest, but I think they want to sign me on loan and this would not be a real alternative for me or Chelsea," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"My agent has been contacted by Juventus, I am 29 years old and it would be a great opportunity. I would love to play in Italy and I hope I can realise this dream before I retire.

"When I talked to my agent, I told him that Juve would be a real opportunity for me.

"Now, though, it all depends on Juve, who must come to an agreement with Chelsea. It is unlikely the club will accept a loan move."
