Aaron Ramsey has been offered a deal worth approximately £31.2m should he sign for Juventus.
The midfielder, who is out of contract in the summer, is not wanted by Unai Emery and can’t be afforded by the club so they have made the decision to allow him to leave.
A number of clubs have been linked with a move for Ramsey. AC Milan, Inter Milan, Bayern Munich, and an ‘unnamed Chinese Super League club’ have all made approaches to Ramsey’s people but it seems it is Juventus who are leading the way.
Although Ramsey has not yet made a decision on his future The Times [£] report that he has been offered £120kpw with bonuses that would take that to £150kpw on top of a ‘sizeable’ signing on fee that brings the value the four-year contract up to £31.2m.
Ramsey currently earns £110kpw with Arsenal and while he was not looking a payrise up to Mesut Ozil levels, he did want moved up to a bracket closer to Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
In addition, according to David Ornstein speaking on BBC Five Live, Emery doesn’t like to play with a number 8.
It is not clear yet if Ramsey will leave in January or the summer but it looks likely to be the latter as Juve seek to get him for free.
He is now able to join in discussions with foreign clubs.
