Juventus will do everything they can to sell Aaron Ramsey this summer after he became frustrated with his injury problems and £400,000-a-week wage… and Fabio Paratici are keen to re-sign him and bring ex-Arsenal star to Tottenham
- Juventus want to ease their financial situation and sell Aaron Ramsey
- The Welshman has struggled since his move from Arsenal two years ago
- Tottenham are among the clubs interested in signing the 30-year-old midfielder
- Spurs’ new sporting director Fabio Paratici helped bring Ramsey to Juventus
Juventus are keen to sell Aaron Ramsey this summer and will do everything they can to move the midfielder, who is seen as a financial burden by the club.
Reports in Italy suggest that after two years in Turin, he is still unable to communicate in Italian with his teammates or the media and that has negatively impacted his ability to settle in the country.
Ramsey underwent medical checks under Max Allegri at the start of the new season on Monday and is awaiting news about his future. That could come from London, and from his former club’s big rivals Arsenal.
Juventus are ready to do everything they can to find a buyer for Aaron Ramsey this summer
The Welsh midfielder returned on Monday for medical tests at the club in Turin
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the native midfielder is being drafted by Fabio Paratici, who is looking to strengthen Tottenham’s midfield and the options available to new manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
Spurs sporting director Paratici was the architect of the Welsh midfielder’s transfer to Juventus two years ago and is now looking to bring him back to the Premier League in what would be an extremely controversial move among Arsenal fans.
Under Allegri, Ramsey may not be in favor and a departure from Italy seems likely – he will have plenty of Premier League candidates if he chooses to return to England.
Paratici has never lost his admiration for the Welsh midfielder, who has missed 25 games in the past two years due to various injury issues.

His annual salary is around seven million euros and Juventus are keen to get rid of that to help improve the club’s financial situation.
The club recognize that Ramsey’s move has not worked, and Juventus risk having to pay the financial ramifications for another two years if no deal is reached on a departure.
Ramsey wouldn’t be the first Welsh star to struggle to impress in Turin. Ian Rush, the former Liverpool forward, played just one year at Juventus, scoring just seven goals in 29 games.
Rush has talked about the difficulties Ramsey faces, and how important it is for a player to feel comfortable off the pitch for his performance on it.
“Ramsey looks like a different player when he’s on the pitch with Wales,” said Rush.
“I smile when I think about it because it’s a somewhat similar situation to the one I’ve been through in Italy at Juventus, if you’re happy to play and feel the confidence everything goes easy.”
