Aaron Ramsey will leave as his contract with Arsenal is set to expire at the end of the season.
It does not seem that the English club will be able to agree on terms with the Welsh midfielder, with many clubs lurking around the corner with great attention.
According to British media, Ramsey has indeed decided to leave Arsenal after his contract expires and a surprise suitor has arisen in Real Madrid.
The player had been previously linked to moves to Liverpool, Juventus or Milan.
Ramsey joined Arsenal in 2008 from Cardiff and has ever since collected 340 appearances for the club, scoring 60 goals and assisting the same amount.
This season, so far, the Welshman has recorded 1 goal and 3 assists in 8 Premier League matches.
Aaron James Ramsey, born 26 December 1990 is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Arsenal and the Wales national team.
Ramsey mainly plays as a box-to-box midfielder, but has also been deployed on the left and right wings.
He played as a schoolboy for Cardiff City, where he spent eight years in youth football, became the club’s youngest ever first team player, and made 22 appearances for the senior team – including the 2008 FA Cup Final.
Ramsey’s career stalled significantly after he suffered a broken leg in a match against Stoke City in February 2010.
Life after major injury
After two loan spells away from Arsenal, he returned to full fitness and re-established himself as a regular starter during the 2011–12 season.
Ramsey was a key player for Arsenal in the 2013–14 season campaign, scoring 16 goals in all competitions, including the winner in the 2014 FA Cup Final against Hull City.
He also played in the 2015 FA Cup Final, which Arsenal won, and scored a second FA Cup winning goal in 2017.
Ramsey made his full international debut for Wales in 2008 and was part of their UEFA Euro 2016 campaign, where he was included in the Team of the Tournament.
He also represented Great Britain at the 2012 Olympics.
The 27-year-old is also a regular for the Welsh national team, collecting 55 caps and 14 goals for the country since his debut in 2008.
