The Welsh international’s agent has revealed that the player is very reluctant to leave the Emirates after a deal was taken off the table. In now-deleted tweets, Avid Sports & Entertainment Group were quoted as saying:
“He didn’t want to leave, but now there is no other option.”
However, Italian website Calciomercato.com report that Juve Sporting Director Fabio Paratici isn’t convinced that Ramsey is a viable target for the Serie A champions, believing that the Welshman’s salary and agent fees would be too high.
Arsenal reportedly withdrew their contract for the same reason, with the Evening Standard suggesting that their £200m a year wage bill was the main reason why they pulled out of talks with the midfielder.
