It’s no longer news that Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement with Italian Serie A champions Juventus ahead of a free transfer move in the summer but what’s surprising is that the Welsh international star snubbed five clubs to sign for the Old Lady.
The Daily Mirror has revealed that the former Cardiff City playmaker rejected offers from five major European clubs in favour of signing for the Italian champions.
French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona, Champions League holders Real Madrid, Italian Serie A club Inter Milan and German champions Bayern Munich were all snubbed by the 28-year-old.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has put pen to paper on a four-year contract at Juventus with a financial worth of £400,000 on a weekly basis.
Ramsey will end his 11-year association with the Gunners later this year when his contract at the Emirates Stadium expires.
Senior Arsenal officials decided against the idea of giving the Welsh international player a new contract mainly due to his high financial demands.
His newly signed contract at Juventus will make the Aaron Ramsey the highest paid British footballer in the history of world football.
Ramsey has scored two goals in addition to six assists in the Premier League this term.
