Chelsea have secured their first major piece of business in the January transfer window, with the news alerting the Blues fans in the Transfer Tavern.
The Premier League club have confirmed that Ramires has joined Chinese side Jiangsu Suning, bringing an end to the Brazilian’s five-and-a-half-year spell at Stamford Bridge.
Ramires was a crucial part of Chelsea’s Champions League winning side from 2012, though he missed the final through suspension, and picked up winners medals in both the Capital One Cup and the Premier League last season.
Chelsea have not officially revealed the figure they received for the 28-year-old but reports suggest the price is a whopping £25m, as reported by the BBC.
Despite signing a new deal in October, Ramires has started just seven Premier League games this term- with his last coming in December in the defeat to Leicester City, the final match of Jose Mourinho’s second-spell in charge.
Our landlord can’t quite believe Ramires fetched the price that he did and thinks Chelsea have won the lottery, much like they did previously with the £50m sale of David Luiz.
Chelsea fans, was selling Ramires the right move? Let us know in the comments below!
