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

The Wales global has announced that he has signed a four-year deal with the Italian champions and will leave Arsenal when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The 28-year-old's move to Turin ahead of next season has been confirmed by Juventus, who completed a similarly-structured deal for ex-Liverpool midfielder Emre Can last summer.

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

The Welshman had been linked with several clubs including Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.

With his current deal expiring in the summer, Ramsey had been free to talk to overseas clubs about a move since January, and Juventus always appeared to be the strongest suitor for his services.

According to a BBC report, Ramsey will earn over £400,000 a week, making him the highest-earning British player ever based on basic salary. He wrote: "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.

Arsenal also released a statement, thanking Ramsey for his time at the club saying: "Aaron's made a fantastic contribution to our club since joining from Cardiff City in 2008".

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