Chelsea midfielder Ramires has signed a new contract extension at Stamford Bridge which commits his future to the Blues until 2019.
The 28-year-old Brazilian, who was linked with a move to Juventus over the summer, joined from Benfica on a four-year deal in 2010 and has won every major club honour since switching to the West London club.
Ramires, who has already made 241 appearances for the Blues, said on chelseafc.com: “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.”
Earlier this week Ramires came out in support of under-fire boss Jose Mourinho, insisting there was “no mutiny” in the Chelsea camp against the manager.
