Premier League and Champions League winner looks unrecognisable from time at Chelsea




The Brazilian, who signed for the Blues’ from Benfica in 2010 became a key part of the squad that lifted the club’s first Champions League title in 2012.

Ramires spent six years in west London, picking up five trophies under six different managers.

But the opportunity of a money-spinning switch to China presented itself and Ramires subsequently signed for Jiangsu Suning in 2016 for £25million.

After three seasons in the Far East, the midfielder moved back to his homeland to finish his career with Palmeiras.


However, recent photos of the former Chelsea star have surfaced on social media leaving fans unable to recognise who he is.

That’s because Ramires now dons a new-look appearance showing off his tattoos and more hair than ever before.

The 36-year-old appears to be in good spirits by the looks of things despite having not featured in a match since 2020.

Although his appearance left fans baffled, few Chelsea fans will forget his impact in helping the Blues finally claim the elusive Champions League title with a penalty shootout victory over Bayern Munich.

Ramires netted a crucial goal in the semi-final against Barcelona to set up a clash with the Bundesliga giants.


His delicate chip over Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes remains one of the club’s iconic moments in recent memory.

Ramires lifted the Premier League title under Jose Mourinho in 2015 and prior to that the Brazilian was a Europa League winner when the Blues saw off his former club Benfica in the 2013 final.

He later defended his decision to swap Stamford Bridge for the riches of China after many suggested the move was financially motivated.

He said: “I see a lot of people saying that I came to China just for the money, but that’s not true.

“Jiangsu introduced me to a long-term project where I would be a key player, they offered me everything I could think of and more, and I decided together with my agent and family that this would be the best decision.


“The money issue weighed on the decision, I put it on the scale that I am already 29 years old and that an irrefutable opportunity like this may never come again. But the way things were happening at Chelsea was the main reason.”
