Jiangsu Suning midfielder Ramires says he wants to play for Chelsea again before finishing his career.
Ramires left Stamford Bridge to join the Chinese Super League in January 2016 in a deal worth £25m.
However, speaking to UOL Esporte, the 30-year-old says it would be “spectacular” to play for Chelsea again some time.
“Chelsea? I’ll always have special affection for them and I want to play for them again before finishing my career,” said Ramires.
“I know the doors of Stamford Bridge will always be open to me and that wearing their jersey again would be spectacular.”
Ramires contributed 34 goals and 25 assists in 251 games for Chelsea between 2010 and 2016, winning the Premier League, FA Cup, League, Champions League and Europa League during his time in west London.
