Paulinho highly recommended Chinese football - Former Chelsea midfielder Ramires

Former Chelsea star Ramires has revealed that fellow countryman Paulinho convinced him to make a move to China.

Ramires made a shock £25million move from Chelsea to Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning during the January transfer window.

The Brazilian international has now gone on to speak regarding his move and has revealed that former Tottenham midfielder Paulinho, who plays for Guangzhou Evergrande, convinced him to make a switch to the Asian nation.

The 29-year-old told Chinese website pptv.com: "I chose to play for Jiangsu because I spoke a lot to (Brazil teammate) Paulinho, who plays for Guangzhou Evergrande.

"We met a lot in England, and he spoke very highly about football in China."
