All good things have to come to an end, and the same is true for endearing football careers. Aaron Ramsey’s tenure at Arsenal has been an intriguing one, with injuries and circumstances often halting what could have been a stellar career.
During the Gunners’ latest Premier League outing against Fulham, the Welshman had found the back of the net, his second goal in the league.
Earlier, it was revealed that Arsenal wouldn’t be handing him a new deal, and the month of December was riddled with speculation about his next destination. Now, one European powerhouse has allegedly secured his signature.
According to Sportmediaset, Juventus and Ramsey have agreed to a pre-contract which will see him join them in the summer. The report added that an official announcement would be made soon.
The move will see Ramsey become the second highest earner at the Serie A club, behind Cristiano Ronaldo. Details according to the source pegged Ramsey to make £5.84million-a-year, with lucrative bonuses in tow as per his performances and appearances.
This further highlights the insistence of the Old Lady at securing able talent in their bid for European dominance. Reports elsewhere had also claimed that the side wished to purchase the 28-year-old in January itself, but Arsenal had elected to hold on to him until the end of this season.
This is an interesting move on part of the London club, considering how Ramsey would have fetched them a fair sum in January given the present market situation, whereas this deal stipulates a free transfer.
With the deal all but secured, it will be interesting to see what Ramsey will put on display during his final months at the Emirates.
