News reaches us that Ramires has today been granted a work permit, and the £18 million deal to bring the Brazilian international to Chelsea should be concluded before the weekend.
Chelsea have trailed Ramires throughout the close season and once Benfica agreed a fee to sell him to Chelsea, only a work permit stood in the way as Ramires didn’t automatically qualify for one.
With the work permit now reportedly granted, the deal is now a formality. The club can focus on it’s other targets, reported to be Benfica defender David Luiz, and Santos starlet, Neymar.
We’ll bring you more as soon as we have it.
