Aaron Ramsey signs Juventus deal worth over £400k-per-week

Aaron Ramsey's 11 year stint at Arsenal will come to an end this summer

Aaron Ramsey's 11 year stint with Arsenal has come to an end.

The Welsh international was told he will not be getting a new contract earlier this season.

After much speculation, it appears that he has finally sealed his move away.

According to David Ornstein of the BBC, he has signed a pre-contract agreement with Juventus.

The 28-year-old has penned a four year deal at the club and will join in the summer.

His basic salary is set to be just over £400k-per-week, making him the all-time highest paid player from Britain.

Ramsey signed for Arsenal from Cardiff in a £5 million deal in 2008.

The Welshman has so far won five trophies with the club, including three FA Cup's.

He has appeared in 357 games and scored 61 times, but he has found playing time harder to come by under Unai Emery.

Ramsey posted the following statement on his Instagram after the news broke...

Few players from Britain have moved abroad to play football, but one player that has previously done so was Ian Rush.

The Welshman spent one season at Juventus after joining from Liverpool in 1987.

And the 57-year-old has backed Ramsey to succeed in Italy.

"I think [Juventus] is a fantastic move for him," Rush told ESPN FC last week, per the Evening Standard.

"When I went there it was an industrial city but it's come on a million times better since I was there.

"I think Juventus are an amazing club. They've still got connections with the Agnelli family, Andrea Agnelli is the president there and Gianni Agnelli was the owner when I was there. So they are very passionate about it.

"I think he'd do really well, you've got Ronaldo there to play with and all that, so that's something special. But I think Aaron will be something special for Juventus and I'm sure he'll enjoy it."
