Arsenal Midfielder Aaron Ramsey has agreed with a five-year deal with Juventus and will leave Arsenal at the end of the season.
It’s Finally Confirmed
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey finally ended the uncertainty about his future by agreeing a five-year, free-transfer move to Juventus worth around £36 million.
The Gunner star will leave the north London club when his contract expires at the end of the season and has been free to negotiate pre-contract agreements with clubs outside of England.
He has now agreed on a contract with the Italian club and expected to undergo medical on Sunday. He will be the second highest earner after Cristiano Ronaldo with £140 000 a week.
Ramsey is currently the longest-serving player having joined Arsenal in 2008 from Cardiff. He has scored 52 goals in his 252 Premier League games and has won the FA Cup on three occasions.
However, his career was faded by injury. Even though the Wales international had been keen to stay at Arsenal, the club withdrew their offer of a new contract on September and instead renewed the contract of Mesut Ozil.
Juventus chief Fabio Paratici said earlier this year that “Ramsey is an excellent player and performing at top level. Ramsey has been in talks with Juventus since last year and now expected to end his 10-year stay at Arsenal for newer and brighter heights.”
