Chelsea reject €30m offer for Ramires from Real Madrid
Last week reports emerged in Spain that Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is weighing up options elsewhere to bolster his midfield, after knowing getting either of Juventus duo Arturo Vidal or Paul Pogba won’t be an easy task.
While the primary focus rest on signing a top striker in the summer, Ancelotti is equally keen to bolster his midfielder, despite having an avalanche of midfield options at disposal.
Spanish newspaper Marca reported that Ancelotti is plotting a move for Chelsea midfielder Ramires, who would cost in the region of €30m. The Italian knows Ramires very well after coaching him at Chelsea and finds him an ideal candidate to reinforce Real Madrid’s midfield.
The 27-year-old who is currently with the Brazilian squad preparing for the World cup, has had a decent campaign last term, but manager Jose Mourinho is not keen to sell him. According to reports from Catalan newspaper Sport, Chelsea have rejected a €30m offer for the Brazilian and Mourinho is not keen to sell him at any price.
The thing is, if you follow Mourinho’s coaching pattern, the Portuguese always had a special liking on few players, whom he can trust blindly, irrespective of the fact, whether the player is yielding maximum output or not. Ramires is one of those type of players it seems. Therefore, even if Madrid make any further move for him, unless the figure is too tempting, can’t see Chelsea selling Ramires this summer.
