Ramires ‘happy to stay with Chelsea’


Ramires has stated that he is content playing with his club, Chelsea, as a midfielder and rejected the Real Madrid transfer rumours.

Some media outlets have claimed ex-Blues coach Carlo Ancelotti is preparing a raid on his former club for one of the English team’s most consistent players.

Real have been keeping tabs on the 26-year-old, who arrived at the Stamford Bridge club three years ago and has appeared in over 150 games.

The Brazilian star is under a contract with the Blues club. He declared that the decision to sell him is up to Chelsea not his inclination to leave.

Ramires confessed to Sambafoot: “I see the interest of Real Madrid as recognition of my good work in Europe, but I’m under contract with Chelsea and it would be unethical of me to comment. For the moment, these are only rumours.

He then added, “I am very happy here. I am respected and part of the club’s history. If I leave, Chelsea would have to make the decision. Chelsea are one of the biggest clubs in the world and I have realised my dream here.”
