Aaron Ramsey signs bumper £400,000-a-week contract with Juventus

"As you may have already heard, I have agreed a pre-contract agreement with Juventus Football Club", Ramsey - who becomes the third Welshman to play for Juve - posted on Instagram.

But he has now committed to a four-year contract with Juventus and will join the Italian champions at the end of the season.

Wales global Ramsey has made more than 250 Premier League appearances since joining Arsenal from Cardiff City in 2008, but he failed to agree on a new deal with the London club in the final year of his contract. "As a result of the registration of the player, Juventus will incur additional costs of €3.7 million, to be paid within 10th July 2019".

In a statement, Ramsey thanked the "extremely loyal and supportive" Arsenal fans for their support during his 11-year career in north London.

'Aaron has made a fantastic contribution to our club since joining from Cardiff City in 2008.

He becomes the third Welshman to play for Juventus following club legend John Charles and former European Golden Boot victor Ian Rush.

However, the former Cardiff City midfielder has chose to join hands with Juventus, signing a four-year deal worth a whopping £400,000 a week, as per the report from BBC Sport, which makes him the highest-earning British player ever.

In a 75-word statement, Arsenal said Ramsey had been a "consummate professional" in his time at the club.

He wrote: "You welcomed me as a teenager and have been there through all the highs and lows I've encountered during my time at the club".

"We look forward to Aaron helping the team to a strong end to this season before he joins Juventus in the summer".
