Chelsea will have to fend off interest from Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid this summer as they look to recruit the Blues’ Brazilian midfielder Ramires, who has been one of our outstanding performers in what has been both a difficult and crazy season.
The 25-year-old scored 12 goals this season, with the pick of them being that amazing chip against Barcelona at the Nou Camp that put Chelsea in control of the tie despite being down to ten men following John Terry’s red card. And his performances have obviously caught the eye of our former manager Mourinho.
According to talkSPORT, Madrid’s scouts and Mourinho have been keeping a close eye on the Brazilian and believe that he could be the perfect midfield partner for Xabi Alonso.
Ramires moved to Chelsea for around £19 million from Benfica during the summer transfer window of 2010 and has improved dramatically, I’d say he’s more than twice the player we signed and for that reason making £10-11 million profit on him with an expected £30m bid isn’t worth it from our point of view.
Ramires is suspended for tonight’s game against Bayern Munich, could he have already played his last game for Chelsea? I hope not and in no uncertain terms I think we should tell Jose Mourinho to ‘f*ck off’ should he come calling for him.
