I am very sure that the Arsenal transfer rumours regarding Aaron Ramsey’s next club will go on right until the end of the summer and they are showing no signs of letting up during the boring interlull, despite no one saying anything of substance. Arsene Wenger was even asked for his opinion on the Ramsey contract and he replied that he has no idea, but for the record this is his words: “We tried that before and it still can happen,” Wenger told reporters.
“I don’t really know what is happening at Arsenal. Sure, Aaron Ramsey is in a strong position now and he will use this position.
“But I don’t know how far Arsenal will go in terms of giving him a huge contract. These things were once my responsibility but not anymore. I am happy about that.”
So he is glad he is out of it all. At least he doesn’t have to lie about not knowing anything nowadays!
According to the Mirror, Man United made an offer for Ramsey this summer and will go all out to try and get him again. They reported: But long-time admirer Mourinho will urge United to go in hard for the 56-cap Welsh star who has played 316 games for Arsenal.
Question-marks surround the long-term futures of midfielders Juan Mata and Ander Herrera – and Mourinho believes Ramsey would be a perfect addition to his squad adding goals and creativity.
They give us absolutely no indication where they got their information, and I find it very hard to believe. And obviously any approach from United to Ramsey would be illegal before next June, so Ramsey’s agent could only say publicly: “There can’t be any interest in him [from United] at the moment because of the regulations. Might be different at the end of the season. Who knows?”
So he hasn’t told us anything either, although it is not strictly true that they can’t show any interest. They could, as any club in the world could, but only if they approach Arsenal about a January sale. So, all in all, we are no closer to knowing anything at all about Ramsey’s situation!
