The quite dramatic and very elongated Aaron Ramsey transfer saga is now officially over. The long time Arsenal man has completed his move to Juventus, joining the Serie A giants on a four deal, reportedly paying him £400,000 a week. That figure would make him the highest-salaried British footballer ever.

The official club statement says that: “Juventus will incur additional costs of € 3.7 million, to be paid within 10th July 2019.” On Monday, Aaron Ramsey released the following statement on social media:

Ramsey made 22 appearances for the Gunners this season, but ultimately he was just not a part of new manager Unai Emery’s plans. The midfielder reportedly wanted to stay, but the club shockingly withdrew their contract offer this past fall. He becomes the third Welshman to play for Juve.

“You welcomed me as a teenager and have been there for me through all the highs and lows I’ve encountered during my time at the club,” Ramsey said in his message to Arsenal supporters.

“It is with a heavy heart that I leave after 11 incredible years in North London.”

“He has always been a consummate professional and will always have a special place in the hearts and memories of Arsenal fans around the world,” reads an Arsenal statement on the deal.
