"Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce we have completed the signing of Brazilian international Ramires from Benfica on a four-year contract. The midfielder was granted a work permit on Thursday and finalised his medical in London on Friday afternoon."

Benfica unsuccessfully attempt to keep Ramires from joining the Chels.

"Every player in the world would love to play for Chelsea and it's a great opportunity that was given to me, I will give my best to repay this chance, and I am very happy," Ramires said.

Good words from, hopefully, a good player. We at the Chelsea Offside wish him good tidings at Stamford Bridge for the duration of his time in SW6. Now, on to Neymar?
