Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey agrees to join Juventus in 5-year deal worth £36m

Arsenal forward, 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
Juventus, who have won the past seven Serie
A titles, signed Ronaldo for €100m last
summer and are nine points clear of Napoli in
second place after 19 games. They have
reached two of the last four Champions
League finals, albeit losing both, to Barcelona
in 2015 and Real Madrid two years later.
They are in the last 16 of this season’s
competition, where they face Atlético Madrid.
The Juventus manager, Max Allegri, and the
director Fabio Paratici are huge admirers of
Ramsey, who is likely to be given a place in
the Juventus starting XI, most likely playing
with Miralem Pjanic and Blaise Matuidi in a
three-man midfield. He is likely to replace one
of Emre Can, Rodrigo Bentancur and Sami
Khedira, with the latter possibly leaving the
club in the summer.
