With the interlull in full swing, it’s time for a round up of the major Arsenal news this weekend.
It’s become apparent over the last few days that Aaron Ramsey will be leaving Arsenal this summer, or even in January. There was an offer on the table from Arsene Wenger, but it seems as though Unai Emery doesn’t regard Ramsey as highly as our outgoing Manager did.
Personal terms had been agreed and Ramsey himself had said that he’d thought a deal was all but finalised.
Emery however had other ideas, and it looks like he won’t pay him the big bucks he demanded to stay and Arsenal and the Welshman will either leave for a fee in January, or on a free next summer when his deal expires.
Liverpool, Real Madrid and even Manchester United are said to be possible suitors for Ramsey, his preferred destination yet to be seen though. My personal view is that he’s never really been real top Arsenal quality despite playing well in some games, but lacks the consistency to warrant the salary he was said to be asking for.
