Barcelona Offer £20m Plus Player Swap In Exchange for Chelsea Midfielder

Ramires Chelsea


Barcelona are said to be keen on luring Chelsea midfielder Ramires to the Nou Camp according to the Daily Mirror.Sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta is readying moves to bring in a number of new signings and has set his sights on the combative Blues star who moved to Stamford Bridge from Benfica back in 2010.
The box to box performer has been a regular under Jose Mourinho and has amassed 195 appearances in his four seasons at the club and will not be a player the Blues boss would be willing to lose.
Ramires scored against Barcelona when Chelsea overcame the Catalan club in the Champions League semi-finals two years ago and the La Liga side are willing to offer £20m plus the services of one of their many young talents, either in an outright deal or on loan, though no player is named by this source.
Barcelona could well finish the season with no silverware having crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid and losing the Copa del Rey final to Real Madrid.
Gerardo Martino’s side currently sit in second spot in La Liga, albeit with Real Madrid in third having a game in hand.
