Ramirez hints at summer exit

Gaston Ramirez has signed a new contract at Bologna, but he seems to already be thinking about a summer move.

The Uruguayan netted himself a pay increase on Thursday after agreeing new terms at the Stadio Dall'Ara until June 2016.

"I promise the Bologna fans seven goals and 15 assists this season," the 20-year-old told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"However, I'll then be ready to play alongside great champions, players like [Juventus and Italy midfielder] Andrea Pirlo."

Ramirez was linked with a switch to Juventus during pre-season, while he also attracted the interest of Roma, Udinese and Fiorentina.

Clubs turned their attention to the attacking midfielder amidst rumours that he was looking for a Bologna exit.

"That's not true," the South American responded. "I never asked the club to sell me during the summer."
