From the Arsenal bench to the Juventus bench.
He’ll probably start for Juve
At least he's going to win things there.
Is he though ? Ronaldo Dybala Mandzukic are untouchable. Then you got Matuidi / Pjanic / Betancur / Douglas Costa / Khedira / Emre Can / Bernardeschi.
Take Khedira and Can out because they're average and maybe Costa if he's sold, that's still 4 bodies to hop over. As good as he can be, if given the choice of a workhorse Matuidi gets in every single time ahead of Ramsey. Granted Matuidi won't be there forever but he still got 2 good years of service.
Should have gone to Bayern or even PSG for a smoother transition but i get the appeal of a Ronaldo team, could be his best chance at the Champions League.
Costa and Bernardeschi play as part of the front 3 pretty much always. Ronaldo, Mandzukic and Dybala start.
Then the midfield has 5 options as of now: Pjanic, Matuidi, Bentancur, Can and Khedira of which 3 start. Matuidi and Pjanic keep their spots but Ramsey is more than capable of winning the starting spot ahead of Can, Khedira and Bentancur.
Yes, this makes perfect sense, I think he could easily start his fair share of games.
Going to Juve. Done deal according to the Guardian.
It was a done deal for Juve as soon as it was clear he was going on a free
Juventus have signed some very good free agents in the last few years, haven’t they?

7.2 million net wages, making him second highest earner at Juve.
Even on a free, how the feck did his agent manage that?
Ronaldo will rip his head off after the first few games. Ball hog midfielders don’t work with him.
He’s done very well to get that move - congrats to him.
I would've taken him at United. Free transfer and £140k a week for a quality player is nothing when you compare it to the wages we pay some of the jokers that play for us now. In fact it'd be worth it for the outrage it'd cause from the Arsenal fans alone.
Very good move for him. Good to see more British players going abroad these days. I look forward to watching Juve and seeing how he gets on. Arsenal couldn't justify his massive wages given Emery can't fit him in the team and I guess they have a strict budget.
Don't understand this (non) bit of business by Arsenal.
It's ridiculous, isn't it? If I'm a footballer right now, seeing that, I'd immediately contact him about a job.
If it's £7.2m net then it's £13m or so gross (I think 43% is the tax rate for highest earners in Italy). Over 4 years it's going to cost them over £50m.
That's actually still not that expensive. We paid £50m in just a fee for Fred.
Well that's because he was free. It's basically equivalent of getting half that and costing £25m which would be considered a bargain for Ramsey in current market.
I think more and more players will be moving on a free in the future. There's too much money in football for transfer fees to make sense already.
De Jong, De Ligt
Not really though. Pulisic maybe because he plays on the right, but the way he's been performing this season I'm not sure he's good enough for us anyway. Great marketing potential though. Rabiot and Ramsey haven't officially gone anywhere yet and you could argue they're not the kind of midfielder we need anyway. Especially Ramsey with his injury record. The way they play they'd have to compete with Pogba for the AM role. We'd be better off with someone who can compete with Matic and/or Herrera.
Would of quiet happily took him here he's a good player and always has been.
For free it's an absolute no brained. Juve have got a great deal.
And thus ends the great Arsenal project where they were going to dominate the league with the best young British players.
Jenkinson, Walcott, Wilshere, Gibbs, Oxlade Chamberlain, Ramsey.
What does that have to with Ramsey?
Also, Jenkinson still might make it!
Who’s going to tell him, lads?
Agree. I think he'll get plent of games, especially with rotation etc.
IDK, with him and Pogba in midfield, do you think it might have been a bit attack heavy?
Can’t forget how he just completely gave up against City in the League cup final last year and had Neville slaughtering him in the commentary. Very good player though .
So glad we didn’t go near him. Such a limited overrated player.
Crazy. Talk about failing upwards.
Whoops slip of the tongue, meant British you bunch of pedants
Just remembered how Arsenal fans went on about it back in the day.
Juve and their freebies
Those are hits, not misses.
Very good we stayed away.
Good move for him, if he can hold a place down for them he'll be doing very well for himself.
Why are people upset we missed out on him? Him and Pogba wouldn’t work. I think we need someone who can control games and sits deeper rather than another box to box.
This happens with many players who sign for another team. Someone or the other would always think we missed out on him
They built a superteam with them
No, they did spend a good chunk of money, but since they are the only team in Italy with it who can afford the wages they are a best option for freebies.
