Real Madrid want Aaron Ramsey according to a backpage report in today’s Star on Sunday.
Aaron Ramsey, you might have heard, is out of contract in the summer and we still have no clue where he might end up.
The Welsh midfielder has been linked with a host of clubs around Europe and now Real Madrid have been added to the list.
The report in the Star claims that Real Madrid’s interest will worry Bayern Munich who have been ‘long-term admirers’ of Ramsey who is available at a price they like. The Germans are reportedly concerned that Real Madrid will be able to offer wages closer to the £200kpw Ramsey is said to want. He currently earns £140kpw at Arsenal.
A move to Real Madrid would offer the tantalising prospect of Ramsey and Bale teaming up together at team level but there’s just something in the back of my head that has a hard time believing any of this.
I get that Ramsey will be leaving, although I struggle with the logic of letting a player go who is deemed worthy of playing for either Bayern Munich or Real Madrid.
Like Wojciech Szczesny being sold to Juventus to replace Gianluigi Buffon at a time Arsenal were desperate for a top-class keeper, it just doesn’t make any sense from a footballing point of view.
Well, I’m sure it does, I’m just choosing not to see it at the minute.
