Brazilian international Ramires has ended speculation over his future by inking a new four-year contract at Chelsea.
The talented midfielder has proved an influential figure in the club's setup following his move from Benfica five seasons ago.
Ramires had been linked with a switch to the Serie A over the summer, but Blues boss Jose Mourinho was adamant that the player was in his first-team plans for the season.
Recent reports had claimed that Ramires was close to agreeing fresh terms, and it has now been confirmed that the 28-year-old has extended his stay at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2019.
"I am very happy to sign a new contract with Chelsea. My family and I are very happy here in London and in the past five years the club has lifted every major trophy. I hope to be an important part of many more successes in the next four years." he told the club's official website.
