Benfica have confirmed they have reached an agreement to sell Ramires to Chelsea for 22million euros (£18.2million), subject to the midfielder passing a medical.
The deal will be completed once Ramires undergoes a medical and pens a contract with the Barclays Premier League champions, something which is expected to take place in the coming days.
The 23-year-old will become the second addition to Carlo Ancelotti's squad following the arrival of Yossi Benayoun from Liverpool.
