Ramires called on team-mates for advice

Brazilian midfielder Ramires has said that he relied on the advice of his fellow countrymen, Gilberto Silva and Julio Baptista, before deciding to join Chelsea this summer.

Ramires, who is closing on a £18.2 million switch from Benfica, impressed at the World Cup with his country and helped his club win the Portuguese Liga title last season. However, when he made the decision to move on, he turned to his international team-mates for help.

"Gilberto, Julio Baptista and others gave me confidence by insisting I must accept this chance," Ramires told the Sun. "In the end the Chelsea proposition was impossible to reject - not just because of the money but the chance to spend every day at one of the best clubs in the world.

"As a boy in Brazil I watched the Premier League and I remember how Chelsea and Manchester United played such attractive football. This summer has been a dream - the Portuguese title with Benfica, the call of Brazil, the World Cup and now the jump into the Premier League."
