Chelsea transfer news
Chelsea will hope to fight off transfer interest from Juventus as they offer a new contract to key midfield player Ramires this summer, according to latest reports.
The Blues have opened up discussions over a new contract with the Brazilian international, with negotiations going well so far for the player signed from Benfica for £18m back in 2010.
Ramires has been a key player since moving to Chelsea, though he did start fewer games last season after falling behind Nemanja Matic in the pecking order.
This had led to some interest from Juventus, though the Daily Telegraph claims Jose Mourinho is keen to keep the 28-year-old at Stamford Bridge.
