Chelsea’s Brazilian star contemplating exit

Chelsea midfielder Ramires is contemplating to part ways with the Premier League champions, according to reports in Brazil and according by Metro.

The Brazilian is reportedly unhappy at the lack of playing time since the arrival of current manager Guus Hiddink at the club.

The 28-year-old, who recently signed a contract extension until 2019, has made only two substitute league appearances since the appointment of the Dutchman at the West London club. He has dropped down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge as Hiddink has preferred to play the pairing of John Obi Mikel and Cesc Fabregas in the midfield.

Brazilian publication Globo Esporte, citing sources close to the player, has claimed that Ramires is considering a move away from the club. The report also claims that the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Juventus are interested in the player’s services.

His last league start came in the 2-1 defeat against Leicester City on December 14. He has scored two league goals in 12 appearances this season. The Brazilian arrived at Stamford Bridge from Benfica in a €22 million deal in 2010.
