Former Chelsea midfielder Ramires has expressed his desire to one day return to the Blues before he calls time on his career, with speculation surrounding the Brazilian’s future after recent links to Inter.
Ramires is currently in China, playing for Jiangsu Suning. The ex-Blues midfielder was briefly the most expensive signing by a Chinese club when he was bought for £25m, with the club currently headed by former England manager Fabio Capello.
Ramires remains a Jiangsu player, but recent reports claimed he was close to a January move to Inter. The Brazilian spoke to UOL Esporte to respond to the rumours.
“There’s been lots of talk about Inter, but nothing concrete has come my way, at least until today,” said the Brazilian.
Ramires on Chelsea: “They’re the team I will always have a special affection for and where I still have the desire to play before finishing my career. I was recently treating an injury I had at the club and I can say that, without a doubt, it’s like my second home there.” pic.twitter.com/bvwr2MQNbO
