Aaron Ramsey‘s post-Rangers career appears to be going every bit as well as his time at Ibrox after a move to Turkish side Fatih Karagumruk collapsed over the weekend.
The Welshman was close to being reunited with former Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo in Turkey but club president Suleyman Hurman confirmed a move was no longer an option.
The 31-year-old was close to agreeing terms on a move to the Turkish side from Juve but will now be longer for another club as he tries to find regular football ahead of the World Cup.
Hurman said: “We practically reached the stage of an agreement with Ramsey but then we gave up.”
Ramsey still have a year left on his contract with Juventus but they appear desperate to get rid of the injury-prone former Arsenal star.
Aaron Ramsey needs the right move to salvage career ahead of World Cup
Regardless of what happens, Ramsey will go to the World Cup with Wales, but how he performs will depend on what happens at club level.
Spending the next six months not playing won’t help him whatsoever but, as his spell at Rangers showed, he’s still got a long way to go before he’s injury free.
His massive wages will make a move away from Juve difficult too with the Italians desperate to shed the cost of Ramsey’s contract.
After seeing Wales teammate and close pal Gareth Bale move to MLS, signing for LAFC, Ramsey could follow suit and head to America as he prepares for Wales’ first World Cup since 1958.
