Aaron Ramsey is reportedly in line for a new bumper deal at Arsenal, which will see him raking in £160k-per-week.
- Ramsey currently earns £100kpw
- Midfielder has just one year left on current deal
- Has been at Arsenal since 2008
- Scored in FA Cup final v Chelsea
With just one year left on his current deal, it’s been widely understood that Ramsey will be handed a new, improved Arsenal contract very soon. However, no one seemed to predict how ‘improved’ this contract would be.
According to the Daily Mail, the 26-year-old could be about to receive a significant pay rise taking him from a measly £100k-per-week to £160kpw.
To put this into perspective, Mesut Ozil currently apparently earns around £140kpw. Although, this will skyrocket if he signs a new deal with the club this summer, which would explain why Rambo is getting such an improved contract.
Either that or he has a great agent.
The Wales midfielder has been a Gunner for nine years now and, while it’s completely normal for clubs to reward players for their loyalty, it’s a massive step up in wages.
Rambo made 32 appearances for Arsene Wenger’s side last season and while he only scored four times, two of these came in the final two matches against Everton and then Chelsea in the FA Cup final.
