The Brazilian international has been something of a bit-part player at Stamford Bridge having been a virtual ever present for the four seasons at the west London side and may well be ready to consider leaving Chelsea for pastures new.

With Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas being Jose Mourinho’s first choice central midfield pairing and Willian and Eden Hazard getting the nods on the flanks it appears Ramires is now only seen as a back-up option.

A move to Juventus could tempt Ramires, who is clearly too good a player to be left warming the bench.

The 27 year old has made just three Premier League starts this term, this after amassing 196 appearances in his first four campaigns with the club.

Ramires was signed by Carlo Ancelotti as part of the deal that saw Matic move to Benfica back in August 2010.

A move away from Chelsea may however be held up until the summer given that Ramires is unable to play for Juventus in the Champions League this term.
