Juventus will only make a move for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey if the Welsh international’s contract demands are reasonable, according to Calciomercato.com.
The Bianconeri don’t want to pay an exorbitant signing on fee or a very high wage for the midfielder. The Welshman is available for nothing at the end of the season with his contract running out next year, but his destination is unlikely to be Italy if he doesn’t lower his salary expectations.
The Evening Standard says that Ramsey wants to double his £110,000 a week wages, with Mesut Ozil’s bumper new deal being used as a precedent for such a significant increase.
However, Juve would probably baulk at such a figure. Calciomercato reports the Serie A champions are wary after what happened with Emre Can this summer.
They are currently paying the German €6million a year, but despite bringing him in on a free transfer, they reportedly spent €16m on agent’s fees for the former Liverpool player.
