Reports in Italy have suggested that Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey could join Gunners CEO Ivan Gazidis by moving to AC Milan.
The Rossoneri are said to be close to recruiting the London club’s chief executive and Sportmediaset.it say the Welshman may not be too far behind him.
Fans on Twitter were highly sceptical about Ramsey leaving:

Other supporters wouldn’t mind if the 27-year-old left the club in the summer:

Considering that it has been reported that Ramsey is demanding double his £110,000 a week salary to stay at the Emirates, it’s highly unlikely that Milan would be able to match the wages offered by the Gunners.
With the Wales international’s contract expiring at the end of the season, the Serie A side could open discussions as early as January about a free transfer, but it seems very unlikely at this stage that a move to Italy would be considered by the player.
