Arsenal Star To Join Juventus

Ramsey will earn an eye-watering "basic" salary of £400k per week before tax in Turin, according to the BBC's David Ornstein.

The Wales global has agreed a pre-contract deal with the Italian champions and will join on a free transfer when his Arsenal deal expires at the end of the season.

Ramsey's current Arsenal deal will expire at the end of the season and contract talks between the two parties broke down in the latter stages of 2018 as the Gunners were unprepared to meet the midfielder's demands.

As his contract will have ended, Arsenal will not be entitled to a transfer fee.

Ramsey will reportedly be second on the club's payroll behind Cristiano Ronaldo, who takes home an estimated $5.3 million per month before tax.

Ramsey has been linked with several clubs including Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.

The 28-year-old passed a two-part medical with Juventus in January, having refused offers from a host of other clubs around Europe including Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. You welcomed me as a teenager and have been there for me through all the highs and lows I have encountered during my time at the club.

In a post on social media, Ramsey said his decision to end his 11-year stay at Arsenal was made with a "heavy heart".
