Former Chelsea starlet Ramires could be close to return to one of the top leagues in the world. Although this time, he wouldn’t be returning to the English Premier League. Rather, it’s the Italian Serie A that is knocking on his door.
The agent of the Jiangsu Suning midfielder, Luiz Carlini, recently said that he is constantly receiving enquiries for his client, amid rumours of interest from Inter Milan. He also said he thinks Ramires “still have what it takes” to perform at the highest level, but at the same time, he recognised the player is extremely happy in China at the moment.
Ramires arrived to the Chinese Super League in 2016 from Chelsea. The link with Inter probably comes from the fact the Serie A giants have the same owners as the CSL club Ramires currently plays for.
It remains to be seen whether Inter want to land Ramires in January or if they are eyeing him for a summer move in 2018. But one thing is certain – the Brazilian could certainly welcome a move to a top league since he is well suited to play in any league in the world.
The 30-year-old Ramires has scored 11 goals for Jiangsu this season, although expecting that kind of scoring output in a tougher league would be difficult. He moved to China from Chelsea in January 2016 after six years at Stamford Bridge.
