Aaron Ramsey signs £400,000-a-week contract with Juventus


Aaron Ramsey has agreed a pre-contract deal with Juventus that will see him earn £400,000-a-week with the Italian champions.

The Arsenal midfielder is a free agent when his contract expires in June, and was linked with several leading European clubs including Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.

“Juventus Football Club SpA announces that it has completed a sports performance contract with the player Aaron James Ramsey with effect from 1 July 2019 and expires on 30 June 2023,” said Juventus in a statement.

“In exchange for the player’s registration, Juventus will incur additional charges for € 3.7 million, payable by 10 July 2019.”

28-year-old Ramsey will sign a four-year deal to become Juve’s second-highest earner behind Cristiano Ronaldo, who is on £500,000-a-week since he moved from Real Madrid for £98m last summer. He will be the highest paid British player of all time, and among the top 10 earners in world football.

“As you may have already heard, I have agreed a pre-contract with Juventus Football Club,” said Ramsey.

“I wanted to issue a personal statement for all the Arsenal fans who have been extremely loyal and supportive. 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.”

“I will continue to give the team 100% and hope to finish the season strongly, before heading on to my next chapter in Turin.

“Kind regards, Aaron.”
