Cardiff City are set to offer both Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale a chance to play in Wales with both players looking for a new home.
Aaron Ramsey looks like he will be leaving Juventus permanently this summer, with talk that the Italian giants want to rip up the final year of his contract.
That comes after Rangers decided they wouldn’t try and make the former Arsenal man’s loan a permanent deal. Injuries, as they have done since he was 18 and was unfortunate enough to met Ryan Shawcross, blighted his time in Scotland.
As for Gareth Bale, he has run down his contract at Real Madrid and will be leaving as a free agent.
Ramsey, of course, played for Cardiff on loan when he was at Arsenal and rehabbing from his Stoke assault, having also come through the Cardiff Academy.
The main issue will no doubt be wages.
Ramsey is on a stupidly large contract at Juventus and could, feasibly, find a club higher up the footballing pyramid who could pay him more.
Similarly, with Bale, his salary was astronomical at Real Madrid, but he has also shown less inclination to play club football over the last few years.
He played just 290 minutes this season compared to Ramsey’s 744.
The pair will be keen to keep in shape with the World Cup later this year. They helped Wales qualify for the competition for the first time in over 50 years when they beat Ukraine.
