Ramsey Set To Become Highest Paid British Player Ever After Signing For Juventus
Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Juventus at the end of his Arsenal contract this season.
According to report, the midfielder will earn a salary £400,000 per week spread out over the four-year term of the contract, that’s Juventus reportedly agreeing to pay the 28-year-old Ramsey some $100 million for his services, which would make him the highest paid British player ever.
Juventus wont have to pay any sign-on fees which is why the salary is reported to be that much and are also not required to pay any up-front money.
BBC’s David Ornstein reported the agreement via twitter.
“Aaron Ramsey today signed pre-contract agreement to join Juventus in summer. 28yo penned 4yr deal after passing 2-part medical late Jan. Wales midfielder leaves Arsenal 30 June after 11yrs. Set to become all-time highest-paid GB player (basic salary), just over £400kpw”
Arsenal have also since released a statement too:
“Aaron’s made a fantastic contribution to our club since joining from Cardiff City in 2008. He has always been a consummate professional and will always have a special place in the hearts and memories of Arsenal fans around the world.
We look forward to Aaron helping the team to a strong end to this season before he joins Juventus in the summer.”
