Manchester United have joined the race to sign Aaron Ramsey, and are set to go head-to-head with Juventus in the battle for his signature.
The Turin-based giants are eager to sign a quality midfielder in the summer, and they have been weighing up their options. Ramsey’s name features high up on that list, and they are set to make a move for him.
However, the 27-year-old isn’t the only midfielder in the Premier League they are after. According to reports, Juventus are eager to pair Ramsey with Liverpool’s Emre Can.
The German has decided to end negotiations over a new contract with his current club after they failed to agree to the terms he was holding out for. Can’s contract at Anfield expires in the summer, which means he is set to leave for free at the end of the season.

Rumor has it that the Can has already made a verbal agreement with Juve that he would join them after his spell in England comes to an end. However, Bayern Munich have now made their interest known, and it has made Can take a step back to reassess his options.
Juventus are determined to not let the current Reds’ midfielder slip from their grasp though, and they want him at the club to be a perfect partner to Ramsey.
Despite his importance to the side, the Gunners have slept over the topic of his future, and have prioritized sorting out a new deal for Jack Wilshere instead.
Manchester United have been keeping a close eye on these developments, and recent reports have claimed that Jose Mourinho has spoken to Ed Woodward after having identified Ramsey as a good replacement if Paul Pogba were to leave.
Arsenal rate the Welshman at around £35 million, which is peanuts for the Red Devils, and a move could well be in place for the summer.
