Chelsea midfielder Ramires set for medical ahead of £25m China move

Chelsea's Ramires is on the verge of joining Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning.

Reports suggest the Brazilian midfielder is set to undergo a medical having agreed personal terms with the club over a stunning £25million deal.

Ramires has struggled for game time at Stamford Bridge since December and is set to join former Blue Dan Petrescu at Jiangsu.

The 28-year-old, who joined Chelsea from Benfica in 2010, had attracted interest from the likes of Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain but has opted to make the shift to China where he will join former Tottenham midfielder Paulino who signed with Luiz Felipe Scolari's Guangzhou Evergrande in the summer of 2015.
