According to Calcio Mercato via the website ilbianconeri.com, Wales international and the often injured Juventus foward Aaron Ramsey, was granted permission from the club to take a 48 hour leave of absence from training in order to help find a team that could take the player off of Juventus’s hands.
Newcastle United, with their new extremely rich Saudi ownership, were seen as the favourites to land the player, but reports suggest that they have yet to persuade him due to the clubs recent form and fear from Ramsey that Newcastle could end up playing in Englands second division The Championship next season, as the club currently sits in the relegation zone in 19th place, three points away from getting out of danger.
Calcio Mercato also reports that if Ramsey stays at Juve past this season, there is a bonus for the player and his agent, which also complicates things even further and gives yet another incentive for both client and representative to want to stay in Turin, because if one thing is certain, Aaron Ramsey may never see this type of money again for the rest of his career.
Today, 24 hours prior to Juve’s first match of 2022 against rivals Napoli, Max Allegri announced to the press during his pre match press conference that Aaron Ramsey and his representatives have informed him and the club that he would in fact leave during this Januarys transfer window. The club he will sign with is unknown at the moment, but considering the source of this info is Ramsey himself, this gives hope to Bianconeri supporters around the world that this news is in fact true.
