Juventus have apparently given up hope of being able to sell Aaron Ramsey this summer with an unpaid agent’s fee causing a problem and a contract termination on the horizon.
But it won’t be for long.
The Daily Record in Scotland, basing their reports off an unnamed Italian source, claimed that the Old Lady were planning to terminate Ramsey’s contract rather than use him or try to find him a new home.
A month later, and that is still the case.
Juventus would like to sell the midfielder they picked up from Arsenal for free, but an outstanding amount of €2.8m due to Ramsey’s agent is causing issues. The Italians are said to be willing to pay this amount in order to make Ramsey a free agent and get his huge wages off their books.
Cardiff City are said to be keen to offer him and Gareth Bale the playing time they both want ahead of the World Cup this winter.
Wherever Ramsey ends up, it won’t be back with Rangers where injuries disrupted his time there.
Ramsey was obviously hugely disappointed to miss his penalty for Rangers in the Europa League final shootout, eventually condemning them to defeat.
The Rangers fans were mostly gracious in response, though.
Ramsey gave a wave of apology to the supporters in their game the following Saturday and received a warm round of applause.
It helps that Rangers were so easily able to move from one final to another, with that match being the Scottish FA Cup final against Hearts.
That time around, however, Ramsey’s loan side came out on top in extra time, so the 31-year-old at least ended his loan with another trophy.
After 13 appearances (nine starts), two goals, and two assists on loan, Ramsey has now returned to the transfer market to try and find a new club
What the future holds for Ramsey, however, is anyone’s guess.
Injuries continue to plague him, sadly, making him a risk for any new club.
