Chelsea Ace Content At Stamford Bridge Despite Real Madrid Interest
Chelsea midfielder Ramires is happy with life at Stamford Bridge despite reported interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid, according the Independent newspaper
Although the summer transfer window is officially closed that doesn’t stop clubs working hard behind the scenes to prepare for future signings, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with all the latest gossip. Today, Ramires is content at Chelsea despite interest from Real Madrid.
Chelsea midfielder Ramires is happy with life at Stamford Bridge despite reported interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid, according the Independent.
The Brazilian has been a huge hit in west London since moving from Benfica in 2010 with his all-action displays in midfield helping the Blues lift the FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League in recent years.
The 26-year-old’s impressive form has seen him attract reported interest from Spain with giants Real Madrid believed to be keen on luring him to La Liga.
However, while Ramires is flattered by the interest as he sees it as proof he’s doing his job on the pitch, the former Cruzeiro ace insists he has no intention of quitting Chelsea any time soon.
“I see the interest of Real Madrid as a recognition of my good work in Europe, but I’m under contract with Chelsea and it would be unethical for me to comment (on their interest). For the moment, these are only rumours.
“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 is one of the biggest clubs in the world. I have realised my dream here.
“My goals are never personal, but collective. I want to continue to play football and help my team win titles. Collective success makes me stronger individually.” Ramires is quoted as saying by the Independent
Chelsea have endured an inconsistent start to life under Jose Mourinho this season and needed a controversial last minute penalty to secure a 2-2 draw with West Brom at home on Saturday, but Ramires feels the Blues squad is in good shape and has what it takes to ‘win it all’ this campaign. He continued:
“The Premier League is one of the toughest competitions in the world, but we have the means to win.
“Our team is very strong and we can win it all this season.
“Winning the Champions League (with Chelsea in 2012) was one of the greatest moments of my career.
“I think the only title that can compete with that is the World Cup in Brazil.”
Ramires has been a key member of Mourinho’s team this season, starting all but one Premier League game so far, and is expected to line-up for Brazil at the World Cup in his homeland next summer.
