After spending over a decade at Arsenal, Aaron Ramsey looks set to move on next summer, as his contract expires in June. 

Multiple sources have announced that the Welshman will be joining Juventus in six months time, and that move, arguably, is a step up for the midfielder. 

Ramsey is now 28-years-old and since joining the Gunners in 2008, has scored 52 goals in 252 games. 

He's entering into the prime of his career, and this month has made it clear that he intends to move away from north London. 

Despite suffering a number of injury problems throughout his time at the Emirates, Ramsey is still highly regarded by Juventus, who have managed to sign him on a free transfer. 

In fact, it appears that they rate him very high indeed - judging by the contract they've offered the midfielder. 

A BIG PAYDAY 

According to the Guardian, Ramsey has signed a five-year deal and will be paid around £140,000-a-week in Italy. 

That means he'll be earning a total of £7.2 million per season, and a huge £36 million over the next five years.

It's arguably quite surprising that Juve have decided to shell out that much for Welshman - and the deal will see him become the second highest paid player at the club next season.

Ramsey will be behind only Cristiano Ronaldo, and he'll be on higher wages than the likes of Paulo Dybala, Blaise Matuidi and Douglas Costa. 

OVERSPENDING FOR RAMSEY?

Considering his past injury troubles, signing a deal that sees him earn over £7 million a season was surely a no brainer for the player himself.

Of course, you could argue that because Juventus are signing Ramsey on a free transfer, that there was a bit more room to offer him a higher wage. 

After all, if another big club had been interested, they could have offered him similar money too. 

Still, it seems quite surprising that Juve will make him their second highest paid player, especially considering the current crop of talent turning out each week for the Turin club.
