Ramires is a brilliant box to box midfielder who has fantastic energy to give any team an advantage on the field but his time at Chelsea could come to an end.
Mourinho has all ready ruled out selling him to Real Madrid and will reject all offers from the Spanish giants who are willing to pay £25-30 million. Chelsea should take advantage and cash in on Ramires, whose recent performances have shown that he isn't performing as well as he can.
This season Ramires has performed at par level which is not what Chelsea need and with the loss of Frank Lampard, they need a man who can step up and lead by example and he is not that player.
Chelsea are linked with a move for Cesc Fabregas and this is a player who can step up and is a similar player that Frank Lampard is. Ramires has great acceleration which does well when he gets forward but he lacks the quality to finish or pass in the final third. If Ramires could develop his game similar to Man City man Yaya Toure he would be a very resourceful player for Chelsea but it doesn't look like he will be able to maintain that level of consistency.
This season Chelsea fans have seen the dark side of Ramires; his red card at Aston Villa was a shocking tackle and even his elbow which he was lucky not to be sent off against Sunderland. He seems he is becoming a liability but he doesn't do enough to warrant his place at the bridge.
Now would be the perfect time to sell him with Mourinho parting with Luiz, Lampard and Cole shows that he ins't afraid to get rid of fan favourites to improve the team.
Who to bring in?
If Ramires was to leave who would they bring in to replace him? It seems like Fabregas is the favoured man with Mourinho admitting interest and Barcelona willing to sell. This is a better player for Chelsea because he supplies more options in the middle of the park defensively and attacking.
Chelsea are also linked with Paul Pogba, he is understood to be valued at £60 million and that price tag might force Chelsea to look at other targets. Pogba is happy playing in Italy and has made a name for himself as the best young talent in football today.
