Manchester United midfield target Aaron Ramsey is set to enter pre-contract talks with Juventus and AC Milan after the Gunners pulled out of negotiations with the player, according to Metro.
Arsenal chiefs have long been trying to tie down the Welshman to a new contract for over a year now, but have been unsuccessful as the attacking midfielder has refused to put pen on paper to a new deal.
United boss Jose Mourinho considered signing the box-to-box midfielder in the summer but his efforts was knocked back by the Arsenal chiefs who considered Ramsey a vital part of the squad. Coupled with Unai Emery’s decision to hang on to the attacker in the post Arsene Wenger era.
But latest reports have confirmed that the Arsenal hierarchy have withdrawn their latest contract offer for and are resigned to losing him for nothing at the end of the season when his contract expires.
Serie A giants AC Milan and Juventus have now been alerted to the latest developments according to the Evening Standard, and with Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis joining AC Milan next month, he could take advantage of the situation at the club.
The 27-year-old has decided to take the route Mesut Ozil took and feels he deserves to earn around the same as Ozil who renewed his contract in January after agreeing a £350k a week deal following a similar standoff with the club.
However, Ramsey’s saga has gone more the way of Alexis Sanchez’s as the club feel he is demanding for too much and could decide to cut their losses and cash in on him in January.
