So the wait is finally over as it has been confirmed in both Italy and England that the Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set to join the Italian giants Juventus this summer. It was confirmed six hours ago in Italy by the Sky journalist Fabrizio Romano who tweeted……
Confirmed: Aaron #Ramsey to #Juventus on next June, done deal. His agent will be in Italy soon to meet Juventus director Paratici and sign the contract for next season. Here we go! 🏴⚫️ #transfers #AFC #Arsenal #Juve

This was swiftly followed by the Guardian in England who gave precise details of the contract length and the Welshman’s wages. They reported…..
Aaron Ramsey has agreed a five-year deal with Juventus worth £36m and will join the Italian champions on a free transfer at the end of the season. The midfielder has been discussing a move for weeks and will leave Arsenal after 10 years at the club.
It had been clear the Wales international would move in the summer and Juventus had been the frontrunners to secure the 28-year-old’s signature. Ramsey will be paid around £140,000 a week (£7.2m a season), making him Juventus’s second-highest earner behind Cristiano Ronaldo but ahead Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa.
The big surprise for me is his wages, as we were led to believe that Ramsey was looking for parity with Mesut Ozil as one of the top earners at Arsenal, whereas at 140,000 a week he will still be earning less than players like Mhkitaryan and Aubameyang.
Oh well, at least we can stop speculating now, and Ramsey can settle down and play his best for us for the rest of the season.
Good luck Aaron, at least you are guaranteed trophies at Juve!
