Aaron Ramsey’s transfer to Juventus is ‘done’ according to Rai Sports’ Ciro Venerato, and the Welshman will join the Serie A club in the summer.

From January, Ramsey is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with whichever foreign club he wants, as his Arsenal deal expires in the summer. However, Venerato claims the 28-year-old has already been convinced by Juventus, ahead of the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

According to Venerato, Ramsey will sign a four-year deal with his new club, until 2023, with an option for one further year. He’ll earn €8m a year (€154k-a-week). In Italy, they tend to report wages after tax, so pre-tax that comes to a fairly similar weekly wage to the £200-250k he was rumoured to want from Arsenal.

It’s worth keeping in mind that we’ve already heard plenty of bold claims about Ramsey’s future. Just yesterday, L’Equipe in France claimed that PSG Sporting Director Antero Henrique has been in ‘regular contact’ with Ramsey’s agent and Arsenal over a January transfer, offering him an 18-month deal.

The generally-reliable Di Marzio reported on PSG’s interest in Ramsey last week, though they added in their article that the player himself wasn’t too keen on moving to Paris.

Di Marzio also claimed that Juventus and Inter Milan are very interested in the Arsenal midfielder. However, Inter don’t feel they can afford Ramsey’s wage demands, which are even higher than the offer they’ve made to star striker Mauro Icardi. According to the Italian outlet, Juventus are therefore the 28-year-old’s most likely destination.

To sum up, in Italy, they think Ramsey is going to Italy, and in France, they think Ramsey is going to France. We’ll have to wait and see what the truth of the matter is.
