It Is Madness - Former Arsenal Star Can't Understand Aaron Ramsey Saga

The midfielder has been discussing a move for weeks and reached an agreement on Wednesday that will leave Arsenal after 10 years at the club.

The Wales worldwide is Arsenal's longest-serving playing, having moved to the Emirates from Cardiff City as a teenager back in 2008.

He will sign his pre-contract with Juve, but see out the season in London.

The 28-year-old hasn't always covered himself in glory during his 11 years at the Emirates but the most disappointing thing about losing the player will be the fact it is a free transfer. This number will make him the club's second-highest earner only behind newest recruit Ronaldo.

"It's the same with Aaron Ramsey, if you're saying that Arsenal are in the market only for loans, to not try and possibly tempt him with, if it is money, a little bit more to keep him and not have to fork out a fee is insane".

"You've only got to look at Callum Hudson-Odoi potentially going for £35m, while Ramsey is going for free".


Ramsey leaving Arsenal is inevitable, then, and ahead of this weekend's Premier League action Emery explained that he respects his decision.

'We need his performances for us and the last matches I am very happy with him'.

"My idea and focus, I say to him every day, is with us", said Arsenal's manager, per Sky Sports.

'His future is for him, his family and his agent.

Ultimately Arsenal were not prepared to meet his salary demands, with some among the hierarchy regretting the new deal given to Mesut Ozil a year ago, worth £350,000 per week, and determined to avoid a repeat. I asked in the last match at Blackpool if he is OK to help us play and he said, "Yeah, coach, I want to play" and he played with a very big behaviour and commitment to us.

Arsenal sit fifth in the Premier League, just three points off the top four, and are also into the last 32 of the Europa League and FA Cup.
