It seems that I am going to be eating my words after saying there was no way one of the European giants would be clambering to sign Aaron Ramsey after Arsenal withdrew his contract extension, but according to today’s Independent it is practically a done deal that Bayern Munich are going to secure his signature.
Bayern Munich are confident they have won the race to sign Aaron Ramsey.
The Arsenal midfielder is available on a lucrative free transfer this summer when his Arsenal contract expires. There has been plenty of interest in him from within the Premier League, especially from Liverpool and Chelsea, as well as from abroad.
But German champions Bayern Munich believe that they have won the race to sign the Wales international.
There has been a recent breakthrough in talks and now Ramsey is expected to sign a long-term contract at the Allianz Arena from the start of next season.
If it’s true they must have offered him a mega contract (or signing on fee) but at Bayern Munich the highest earner is Lewandowski on 200,000 GBP a week and it must be very unlikely that Ramsey will be taking home more than that, so I wonder how much Arsenal offered him before withdrawing the offer?
