Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey signs four-year contract with Juventus

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is leaving the club after 11 seasons to join Juventus, the Serie A club said on Monday as it confirmed the Welshman had signed a four-year contract.

Ramsey was free to open talks with any club from 1 January 2019 as he was in the final six months of his contract.

Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid were also linked with the player, but Juve have won the race to secure his signature.

Juventus said that the club are liable to pay 3.7 million euros ($4.1 million) by July 10 in the absence of a transfer fee.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has agreed to join Italian giants Juventus next season in a deal that will net him in excess of $500,000 a week.




Ramsey's future had been the subject of speculation for some considerable time with his contract due to expire at the Emirates Stadium at the end of the current season.

"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".

The 28-year-old Wales worldwide will arrive in northern Italy on July 1 with his contract running until June 30, 2023.

In a statement, Ramsey thanked the "extremely loyal and supportive" Arsenal fans for their support during his 11-year career in north London.

Aaron's made a fantastic contribution to our club since joining from Cardiff City in 2008.
