Blues star poised for surprise exit.
Chelsea could be ready to let key midfield player Ramires leave for Real Madrid in a surprise deal, according to Goal.com.
The Brazilian box-to-box player has previously been linked as a £25m target for his old manager Carlo Ancelotti, who brought him to Stamford Bridge from Benfica in the 2010/11 season.
Ramires could still be set for a reunion with his old boss, with Real in need of reinforcements in the defensive midfield department, while Chelsea already have Nemanja Matic ahead of him in the pecking order.
The 27-year-old has struggled for regular playing time this season and may now be surplus to requirements after struggling to hit his best form.
