Arsenal Star To Join Juventus

Gunners midfielder Aaron Ramsey has opted to not sign a new deal at the Emirates and will now join the Old Lady for free next season.

Ramsey also released a statement on his social media, thanking the Arsenal fans for sticking by him for the past 11 years he's spent at the club and also vowed to give a 100% in the remaining days of his stay there.

The Wales global will end his long association with Arsenal after agreeing terms on a four-year deal which will reportedly pay him £400,000 ($728,180) per week.

Confirmation of the move ends considerable speculation over the future of the Wales global, who turned down a new deal at the Emirates Stadium earlier this season. "As a result of the registration of the player, Juventus will incur additional costs of €3.7m (£3.24m), to be paid within 10th July 2019".

Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Real Madrid also showed interest in the Welshman.

"I wanted to issue a personal statement to all the Arsenal fans who have been extremely loyal and supportive", the statement reads.

'You welcomed me as a teenager and have been there for me through all the highs and lows I've encountered during my time at the club.

"It is with a heavy heart that I leave after 11 incredible years". He won the FA Cup under Arsene Wenger in 2014, 2015 and 2017.

Liverpool were interested in signing Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal, according to the Evening Standard's James Olley, but declined to pursue the player partially because of his wage demands.

Ramsey began his career at Cardiff City, making it his first team debut in 2007 before arriving at Arsenal in July 2008.
