Chelsea have agreed terms on a new and lucrative four-year contract with Brazilian central midfielder Ramires.
According to the Evening Standard, the contract negotiations have been on since June and the player, who till now was not so sure of his future at the Stamford Bridge has just agreed on the terms of the contract and will apparently be in Chelsea for another four years.
The 28-year-old midfielder who was being seriously targeted by Juventus in the summer and who had just one year left on his contract has agreed on a £3.7 million pounds deal per season with Chelsea until 2019.
Although Mourinho’s has been recently said to be interested in signing a new central midfielder as he seems to be disappointed in all his central midfielders of Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fabregas, John Obi Mikel, Ramires and new boy, Ruben Loftus-Cheek who fans seem to calling for at the moment.
The Portuguese manager has been disappointed in them so much that he has even publicly picked fights with some of these players and seem to have run out of patience for their failures but still, he has decided to retain Ramires for another four years, maybe because he believes so much that the players can get back in form and do well. Ramires who has only completed the full 90 minutes just once in the 4-1 Capital One Cup win at Walsall must have been delaying because of this but he too has also deemed it fit to sign a new contract.
Ramires who recently passed the 150-appearance mark for the club has been happy at the club and always committed when he takes the pitch since he arrived in 2010.
Maybe this new contract will inspire the player to some fantastic performances again for Chelsea, time will tell.
