Juventus have spoken to Chelsea about signing Ramires [Evening Standard]

The London Evening Standard are reporting on Tuesday afternoon, that Italian champions Juventus are looking to sign Chelsea midfielder Ramires.

The 28-year-old Brazilian joined Chelsea for £19.8M in 2010 from Benfica, and he still has two years to run on his current Blues deal.

Juve are in the market for a midfielder after a huge shake up in their squad this summer.

Arturo Vidal has been sold to Bayern Munich, while maestro Andrea Pirlo has left Turin to join MLS franchise New York City FC.

The Bianconeri has also suffered some bad luck, as summer signing Sami Khedira has been ruled out for two months with a thigh injury.

Kwadwo Asamoah is also injured, and Serie A starts on Sunday week.

According to the Standard, “Juventus are willing to buy him permanently or on loan”, but Jose Mourinho doesn’t want to let Ramires go.

Ramires only made 11 Premier League appearances for Chelsea last season.
