Serie A giants Juventus are open to selling former Arsenal midfield star Aaron Ramsey after just 12 months at the club as they look to recoup funds amid the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Ramsey joined Juventus last summer on a free transfer after leaving Arsenal, and managed 24 appearances this season despite missing seven games through injury.
But according to the Daily Mail, Juve bosses are said to be putting Ramsey up for sale as they desperately attempt to cut their wage bill.
Ramsey earns £400,000-a-week in Turin – something the club will struggle to maintain.
And his hefty wages could cause a stumbling bloke for any potential suitor, with Manchester United understood to be monitoring his situation in Italy.
If he was to move back to the Premier League, he would be expected to take a pay cut Juve could look to loan him, while still paying a cut of his wages.
It comes after speculation that United were considering a swap move involving Paul Pogba and Ramsey.
Pogba’s Old Trafford future remains in doubt, with Juve keen to bring him back to the Serie A.
And with United doubting they would receive their £90m valuation, including Ramsey in a deal for the Frenchman could drive the price down.
Ramsey was left out of Juve’s Coppa Italia squad that will face AC Milan.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
