Aaron Ramsey splits opinion, even amongst Arsenal fans.
But he must be fairly good if Juventus have agreed to fork out £140k/week to sign him this summer.
Yes, according to The Guardian, the Welshman has agreed to join the Italian champions for absolutely nothing this summer after contract talks with Arsenal broke down.
SIGN UP – WIN £5k EVERY WEEKEND BY PLAYING DREAM TEAM WEEKENDER
Ramsey, whose deal with the Gunners is up at the end of the season, was able to negotiate with foreign clubs this month and has been discussing a move with Juve for weeks.
The 28-year-old was also being linked with Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and PSG, but Turn is where he’ll end up.
Ramsey, amazingly, is set to become Juve’s second highest earner behind Cristiano Ronaldo, above the likes of Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa.
Cushty, Aaron, very cushty.
His Arsenal career was plagued by injuries and inconsistencies.
But he proved time and time again he was the man for the big occasion, scoring the winner in both the 2014 and 2017 FA Cup finals.
His portfolio of goals is outrageous too, from long range beauties to impudent flicks and tricks.
We’ll also never forget when he briefly morphed into prime Frank Lampard during the 2013/14 season, bagging a million goals by Christmas.
All in all, he’s been a fabulous servant to the Emirates faithful and a joy to watch.
