The combative midfielder arrived in west London back in the summer of 2010 from Portuguese giants Benfica.
And though he had to be patient at first, he has been considered as a mainstay in the side for some time now, making himself an important part of the squad under a number of different managers.
Jose Mourinho is the man currently making the most of the Brazil international’s talents, with a leading role being played in the pursuit of the Premier League title.
Ramires penned a five-year deal back in 2012 and the 27-year-old has told fans that he intends to honour that agreement despite constant links of an imminent move to mainland Europe.
“I am very proud to have completed these 200 games for Chelsea.
“It’s a huge honour to be one of the players in the current squad that have worn the shirt the most times.
“I hope to be at Chelsea for much longer and to achieve other important milestones in the future of the club.”
