Having served five and a half years as a Chelsea player, Ramires has made a move out of the club. The 28 year old has departed from Stamford Bridge as he heads to the Chinese League. Jiangsu Suning has announced the signing of the midfielder. Ramires joins the Chinese club for a fee of £25 million, which is a good business deal for the Blues. Having started just seven games this season, the Brazilian finally settled on the plan of flying out of England.

Ramires joined the Blues in 2010 from Benfica for nearly a sum of £17 million. In total, the midfielder has made 251 appearances for the London club and has scored 34 goals. The former Benfica man has contributed in Chelsea’s victory in the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and Europa League. Under former gaffer Mourinho, Ramires played an important role in the squad, serving as a holding midfielder but also as a right-sided winger charged with tracking back.

Ramires was instrumental in several significant results for the Blues against Manchester City and Liverpool. Playing bravely through the pain barrier in one win at Anfield, the Brazilian earned appraisal from boss Jose.

Ramires will now head to China to start a new journey. His new club, Jiangsu Suning finished ninth in China’s top tier in 2015. Ramires will be coached under former Blue Dan Petrescu at China. The Chelsea fans would be disheartened to bid farewell to their player who served loyally to the club. Rumours of Cahill willing to leave Chelsea have spread like wild fire. Would Cahill be the next Blue to exit from the Stamford Bridge?
