Things have not gone to script for Aaron Ramsey at Juventus, with the midfielder not making the impression expected of him at the Turin club. The Welsh midfielder has endured a torrid time in Italy as he has struggled to reignite the form that had many clubs scrambling for his signature.
Ramsey spent 11 glorious years at Arsenal, where he won the FA Cup three times and the Community Shield twice. He also won the EFL Cup in 2018 and managed 64 goals across 369 matches for the Gunners. It was those performances that prompted Juventus to make a bid for him.
The marriage between the two has been anything but harmonious. The Welsh man has failed to deliver on the promise. As it stands, both player and club are dissatisfied with each other with accusations and counter-accusations thrown at each other. Both parties are set for a divorce, with the issue being when rather than if.
Juventus have been going through financial issues not helped by the Covid-19 pandemic, and in a bid to balance their books, they may sell a few players. Top of the bill is Aaron Ramsey, who has been less than inspirational for the team. You can’t blame Juventus. When you have a player on a salary of £400,000-a-week, you expect plenty of him. So far, the Welshman has not responded in kind.
Juventus have made it clear that the former Arsenal midfielder is free to leave in January, and reports have it that a contract termination could yet follow suit. Italian journalist Giovanni Albanese reported the information via Football Italia.
The arrival of Ramsey to Turin hasn’t gone to script with injuries the bane of the Wales midfielder. Game time has been a luxury for Ramsey, and in the two-and-a-half years he has been with the Old Lady, he hasd only 25 league matches. It is not the expectation of an elite midfielder.
With both parties agreeing that the marriage is not working, it seems best to part ways. According to reports, Ramsey wants to leave the Serie A club, and Juventus are not ready to stand in his way. Removing his £400,000-a-week wages from their books will be a relief for Juventus, who expect any loan move for Ramsey must include full coverage of his wages.
The 30-year-old made allegations against the Old Lady in October. He claimed that the training methods employed at the club did not enable him to play regularly. According to him, the training method at Juventus differs from his national team.
He said that many people had managed him over the years. He claims they know how to bring out the best in him and ensure he can play many games in a row.
Ramsey said it a fact, as he proved at the Euros.
Finally, the Wales midfielder said he can produce top performances and is raring to go.
