Chelsea have begun talks with Ramires over a new contract, according to the Mail Online.
The Brazil international’s current deal is set to expire in 2017, and Blues’ manager Jose Mourinho is keen to secure his services for the long term.
Since arriving at Stamford Bridge, the 28 year old has racked up two hundred and twenty-four appearances in all competitions, scoring thirty-four goals.
Prior to his switch to the Premier League, he midfielder spent a season in the Portuguese Liga with Benfica, while he has also played for Joinville and Cruzeiro in his home country.
Internationally, he has been capped fifty-one times for Brazil, scoring four times, and was part of the squads for the 2010 and 2014 World Cup finals.
Having won the Premier League by eight points last season, Chelsea can be backed at a price of 6/4 to finish in first place next May.
