So it would appear that the rumours were true and it was Arsenal’s decision to withdraw the contract offer to Aaron Ramsey, well that is what the Welshman is now saying. “Everything has been going great with the club,” he said. “We thought we were in a position where we had agreed a deal but that’s no longer the case.
“So I just have to carry on playing my football and do my best for Arsenal this season and I’ll leave the rest with the club now.
“Am I disappointed? That’s a decision that they have made and things happen in football and you just have to get on with it and carry on playing the best I can.
“That’s all I am concentrating on and giving my best for Arsenal.”
With no contract offer on the table, it looks like the 27 year-old will be leaving next summer so he can gain a massive signing on fee from his new club. “Would I stay for the rest of the season? Of course, yeah,” he continued.
“I am contracted to Arsenal and I am going to do my best now this season to try and achieve something special.”
Obviously it could be not all the clubs fault of course, pèrhaps Ramsey wanted a big signing on fee from Arsenal as well, and the club refused to cave in to his agents demands. I am sure Arsenal will never give us their side of the story….
But after Sunday’s performance should we be reconsidering the offer of a new contract?
