Ramsey names asking price to terminate his Juventus contract

Juventus are going through a financial crisis and are trying to cut deadweight to survive. The team led by Massimiliano Allegri is struggling in Serie A this season. They need refreshing, but they need to lose some weight to allow wriggle room. 

Juventus' financial crisis, which saw a drop in revenue, led to the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo at a reduced price. Despite Ronaldo's exit to Manchester United, the Turin-based side remain enmeshed in problems on and off the pitch.

The pressure is beginning to tell, and Allegri is hard-pressed to work his magic and return Juventus to elite status. 

Allegri wants new players. Under the current economic climate, it will be hard to achieve. To make this happen, Juventus have to sell some players. They have gladlyntified several players that are surplus to requirement.

Arthur Melo, Dejan Kulusevski, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey are on the Juventus transfer list.

Aaron Ramsey has hardly played in recent seasons. He is happy to leave the club, but with a proviso. The Welshman wants to be paid off.

Ramsey requests severance pay

Aaron Ramsey has been deemed surplus to requirement at Juventus, and the Turin side wants to ship him out. The Welshman, who still has about 18 months left on his contract, is not in a hurry to leave the club but is also interested in ending the relationship.

With the Italian club hoping to offload Ramsey in the January transfer window, the player has offered Juventus a way out of their current predicament. Ramsey has asked for a year’s severance pay to terminate his contract with the club.

Ramsey has asked that part of his remaining salary to terminate his contract. La Repubblica puts a figure to his request. The fee requested by Ramsey comes to around £6 million if Ramsey is to depart in the new year.

Newcastle and former club Arsenal are interested in bringing the midfielder back to England.

Ramsey joined Juventus in 2019 after signing a four-year deal as a free agent. The Welshman joined the club with high wages and expectations, but he has failed to live up to the hype. Only recently did he complain about the club’s training methods.

A super buy, a super flop

Ramsey joined Juventus amid high expectations, but he has failed to tie down a regular shirt at the club. Since he arrived in 2019, Ramsey has managed 70 caps, with only three of those seeing him play the full 90 minutes.

To say Ramsey has been a disappointment to the club is putting it mildly, and Juventus are desperate to get him off their wage bill.

Last season, he made 22 Serie A appearances for the club under Andrea Pirlo, but Allegri has not counted on him this season as he has featured on three times. Allegri does not see a future for Ramsey at Juventus and wants his £400,000 per week salary taken off.

After years of paying their huge wages, the pandemic saw Juventus release Gonzalo Higuain and Miralem Pjanic.
