Juventus are keen to offload Aaron Ramsey in the winter market as he isn’t included in Massimiliano Allegri’s plans this season.
Three days ago, Tuttosport reported the Serie A side are ‘ready to agree’ for his transfer and only Newcastle United were named as a potential contender.
The Wales international has had more minutes in four games with the national team than with the Turin club this campaign. He has struggled with injuries and poor form, and therefore his employer is looking to cut ties with him next month.
This is detailed by Calciomercato, who explain the midfielder has ‘accepted the idea’ to change clubs because his manager has not counted on him and he is out of the Old Lady’s project. He ‘is to be considered for a sale’.
After the ex-Arsenal man refused to leave the Italian club in the summer, he will have another opportunity to make a switch in January. Juve are ready to let him go out on loan and if needed, and pay part of his salary during his temporary stay elsewhere.
Eddie Howe’s side are in the picture and have ‘taken steps’ to sign Ramsey. Although it may not be too convincing, likely for the player, the track is ‘still concrete’.
A move to the Tyneside club will see the 31-year-old land a lucrative deal, but the chances of the Magpies dropping to the Championship remains ‘concrete’. Ramsey, therefore, has to ‘dissolve the reservations of this millionaire project’ at St James’ Park, before agreeing to join Newcastle.
Juventus are set to have another summit with Ramsey’s agent in the next few days, after holding a meeting at the start of this month. The two parties’ relationship ‘seems to have reached the end credits’, and parting ways would be the best solution for both.
