Chelsea chasing Brazilian midfielder

Ramires’ agent, Luis Carlini, reports that Chelsea and Bayern Munich have made enquiries about the Benfica star.

“Many clubs from the big European leagues have been in contact about Ramires,” Carlini told the News of the World.

“Chelsea and Bayern have spoken to Benfica, but I can’t say more.”

Ramires joined Benfica in a £6.5million deal last summer.

“I came to Europe to win championships,” he said.

“It is normal that I would look at any offers from clubs in bigger leagues but I am currently under contract and Benfica will have the final say.”
