Aaron Ramsey will leave Arsenal football club and the end of the season after signing a 4 year deal with Juventus – and the amount of money being discussed is quite ridiculous!
Ramsey, 28, opted to run down his contract with Arsenal after failing to agree to new terms and has duly signed a pre contract with Italian champions Juventus.

It is reported that the financials of the deal will see him earn a base pay of £400,000 per week – making him the highest paid player from the Great Britain ever, according to BBC News correspondent David Ornstein.
