It is widely being reported that Chelsea and Brazil midfielder Ramires is set to leave for the Chinese Super League in a 25 Million Pound deal. The Twitterati were divided in their opinions, with some calling him money hungry and others applauding his contributions to the club.
The 28-year-old is believed to be on the verge of signing a 4 year deal with Chinese club Jiangsu Suning. The Brazilian has spent 6 seasons at Stamford Bridge and is considered an integral squad member, but it looks like he’s seriously considering a move away, with big money on offer.
Ramires has fallen by the wayside of late, and this could be a major factor that will be playing on his mind when he looks to decide his future.

Looks as though Ramires is throwing his career away. Considering the bid is £25m I think we should take it. Could give RLC more of a chance. — Tom Wheeler (@TomWheeler95) January 26, 2016

Although the majority of fans on Twitter ridiculed his move to China, some took the time to applaud him for his contributions to the club. Particularly his pivotal role in defeating Barcelona in he 2012 Champions League semi-final.

Ramires probably leaving Chelsea then. Has a player's defining moment ever been so utterly unrepresentative of him? pic.twitter.com/TRWIBFB93h
