Ramires ready for Chelsea move

Chelsea target Ramires has revealed that he asked for advice from two former Arsenal players before deciding on a move to the Premier League. The Benfica midfielder is thought to be on the brink of a £17million switch from Portugal to England, with contract talks and a medical pending. And Ramires has explained that he spoke with Brazilian compatriots Gilberto Silva and Julio Baptista, who both played for Arsenal, regarding making the transfer to England. The 23-year-old said in The Sun: "Gilberto, Julio Baptista and others gave me confidence by insisting I must accept this chance. "In the end the Chelsea proposition was impossible to reject - not just because of the money but the chance to spend every day at one of the best clubs in the world. "As a boy in Brazil I watched the Premier League and I remember how Chelsea and Manchester United played such attractive football. "This summer has been a dream - the Portuguese title with Benfica, the call of Brazil, the World Cup and now the jump into the Premier League."
