Ramires made up over Chelsea deal


Brazil midfielder Ramires has again spoken of his delight at being poised to complete his move from Benfica to Chelsea.

The 23-year-old South American will join the Blues for a fee in the region of £18million and he is looking forward to the challenge of proving himself in England.

He told The Sun:"In the end the Chelsea proposition was impossible to reject – not just because of the money, but the chance to spend every day at one of the best clubs in the world.

"As a boy in Brazil I watched the Premier League and I remember how Chelsea and Manchester United played such attractive football.

"This summer has been a dream – the Portuguese title with Benfica, the call of Brazil, the World Cup and now the jump into the Premier League."
