Aaron Ramsey has reportedly signed his Juventus pre-contract ahead of becoming the best-paid Brit of all time on £400,000 per week.
According to BBC Sport’s David Ornstein, Ramsey underwent a two-part medical in January and put pen to paper on Monday, committing to Juve for the next four seasons.
Ornstein adds the midfielder will surpass Wales teammate Gareth Bale as the highest-earning player from the British Isles, pocketing a basic salary that amounts to £400,000 (€456,000) a week.
The 28-year-old will officially become an Old Lady player on July 1, once his Arsenal contract expires.
However, Italian football journalist Gabriele Marcotti believes Ramsey will earn a wage of £250,000 before tax instead.
BBC reporting that Aaron Ramsey will earn £400k/week basic salary at Juventus. Been told it's actually around €7.5m net which works out to £250k/week.— Gabriele Marcotti (@Marcotti) February 11, 2019
As ever, can only go with what I'm told, but £250k/week sounds a hell of a lot more plausible. (If still rather high...)
