Serie A side to cut losses and save £8.5m on ex-Rangers star – report

Former Rangers loanee Aaron Ramsey is set to bank a whopping £3.5m to have his Juventus contract ripped – but the Old Lady will still save £8.5m from his bumper contract.

That’s according to claims coming out of Italy, namely in Il Bianconero, who believe Juventus have gave into the Welsh international’s demands as he enters the final year of his deal.

Aaron Ramsey, now 31, made headlines when he signed a whopping £400k a week contract with Juventus in 2019 following the expiration of his deal at Arsenal.

But the injury-plagued midfielder has failed to make an impression at the Serie A club and he is widely regarded as one of their most expensive ever flops.

And the Italians are not yet done paying the bill as the report claims they will fork out £3.5m to release Aaron Ramsey from his Juventus contract.

This will however save Juventus money in the long run with Il Bianconero suggesting the final year would cost the club around £12m gross.

It’s been a costly experiment for Juventus, with Aaron Ramsey only playing 70 games for the Italians across three seasons.

Rangers fans too are well aware of the midfielder’s injury issues which greatly disrupted a six month loan spell in Glasgow and cost the club dearly.

Not only did Ramsey fail to properly impact the Scottish Premiership title race, but the midfielder infamously missed the decisive penalty in the Europa League Final.

However, the midfielder did lift the Scottish Cup come the end of the campaign.

Now, who knows what the future holds for a player plenty will be avoiding this summer as his injury problems and excessive wage demands continue to catch up.

Despite the disappointing last few years for Ramsey, the midfielder certainly appears to think he’s still worth a pretty penny as evidenced by recent links to Andrea Pirlo managed Fatih Karagumruk in Turkey.

The club’s president has revealed that talks collapsed with the midfielder despite a deal being said to be close.
