Benfica midefield Ace Ramires has pleaded with the club to let him leave for Chelsea.
The speculation about Ramires's moe to Chelsea has been growing by each passing day. The newspapers in England and Portugal both decalred that an official offer had been made by Chelsea worth £17m and it ws indeed confirmed by Ramires todaywhen he publicly spoke about the offer received by Benfica from Chelsea.
He said. "I know there has been a bid for me from Chelsea, this is a great honour, it is like a dream come true. I have dreamt of playing in the Premier League and now to have the opportunity to play for the best team in the Premier League and for a club with so much history - it would be my dream.I hope this can happen, and I hope that I can help Chelsea to regain the Double and also to win the Champions League next season."
"I am looking forward to playing with the likes of John Terry, Petr Cech, Frank lampard and Didier Drogba, they are amongst the best in the world, to play with players like this under a manager of the stature of Carlo Ancelotti whom I admire and respect, in a club with so much spirit and winning mentality, would be a tremendous privilege."
"In the process I would like everyone to know I had a fantastic year at Benfica, and I respect them a lot, but this is a dream that I cannot let go."
