Ramires is still plying his trade in China under former England manager Fabio Capello (we have less fond memories of him), but that could well be about to change.
It seems Inter Milan are courting the former Chelsea man, though Capello has called on the Brazilian to stay put, even comparing him to his Stamford Bridge successor N’Golo Kante.
“We are waiting for him [Ramires] at pre-season training,” Capello told Sky Italia.
“He is a really serious lad who works hard – he is not a surprise.
“He is really strong and is very important to us. If he remains with us in China, then we will be happy.
“If he moves to Inter, I think he will be a great reinforcement for them, but it doesn’t depend on Inter or on us, rather many other factors like Financial Fair Play. I recognise Inter’s problems, but I also want to make Jiangsu stronger.
“He is a [N’Golo] Kante [type of player]; very good tactically and very dynamic. Compared with Kante, he is actually even more of a goal-scoring threat. He is a player of absolute quality.”
