The gunners were ready to offer him a new deal that was going to see him get 170k a week wages but out of the blue, the club decided to withdraw this offer even though some reports claim that he was about to accept it since Arsenal is very special to him. Aaron Ramsey is a fan favourite at the Emirates Stadium and this news is going to raise questions on how the gunners are being run because they are letting go of one their best players on a free transfer.
Arsenal fans will at least feel happy for Aaron Ramsey because he has got himself a great deal and he isn’t joining a direct rival like how Alexis Sanchez supposedly betrayed them when he joined Manchester United in the 2018 January transfer window.
It’s going to be interesting to see how Unai Emery is going to build his team in the summer since for now, it’s confirmed Aaron Ramsey will leave and Mesut Ozil could also leave in the next transfer window.
