Chelsea have officially announced that midfielder Ramires has joined Chinese club Jiangsu Suning on a permanent deal via their official website.
The 28-year-old has spent the past five-and-a-half seasons at Stamford Bridge and played a huge part in all the club’s success during that time.
He had signed a new contract extension earlier in the season and has been one of the club’s better performers during it’s course, however, he recently expressed his unhappiness with life at Chelsea since Guus Hiddink succeeded Jose Mourinho.

The Brazilian international made a total of 251 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 34 goals, but will join up with former Chelsea defender Dan Petrescu at Jiangsu, as he coached the club.
Many have been left scratching their heads at the move, as he is still deemed too young to make a move like this, but the deal is said to have earned Chelsea a fee in the region of £21million.
