Ramires says he’s keen to return to ‘second home’ Chelsea.
Ramires has been heavily linked with Inter but he has his heart set on a move back to Chelsea before he retires.
Jiangsu Suning midfielder Ramires admits he would like to return to Chelsea in future. The 30-year-old left the Premier League champions in January 2016 for a reported fee of £25million, signing a four-year contract with the Chinese Super League side.
The Brazilian spent time at Stamford Bridge in November, as part of his recovery from a knee injury, and would love to go back to his “second home” on a permanent basis.
Ramires said: “They’re the team I will always have a special affection for and where I still have the desire to play before finishing my career, I was recently treating an injury I had at the club and I can say that, without a doubt, it’s like my second home there.
“I know the doors at Stamford Bridge will always be open for me and going back to wear the shirt of that club one day would be amazing.
“There has been a lot of talk about Inter’s interest but nothing concrete has come to me directly, at least until now,
“Everyone knows Inter is a great club and to play in Europe again is one of my wishes.
“My focus is on helping the team have a great year in 2018 and nothing else is going through my head at the moment.”
