If football matches are capable of enticing fans, the players' transfers dictate the fate of clubs who're in contention to secure the signatures of their valued assets. At the same time, the transfer windows can turn out to be a heartbreak for some fans, while it can excite others with new joinees.
But, amidst all the hullabaloo, a lot of money is splurged by the football clubs to attract their potential targets which further equates to top wages and big-buck signings. While the summer transfer window has come to an end, there is no stopping the high-profile moves in club football.
After luring Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid last summer, Serie A giants Juventus have now managed to steal dynamic midfielder Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal. Massimiliano Allegri's side will now be bolstered with the presence of the Gunners star at the Turin-based club.
The 28-year-old signed a four-year deal with Serie A champions for a staggering 7.8 million dollars per season. In the process, he became the highest paid British Footballer of all time (in terms of basic salary).
The Zebras tried really hard to make Ramsey their prey in the January window, but couldn't succeed then. Fortunately, all their hard-work to didn't go to waste as they finally caught hold of him by the end. As per the pre-contract signed by former Arsenal player, he would be joining Juventus in July, after the completion of his contract with The Gunners.
The British international hasn't cost Juventus anything because his contract with Arsenal finishes in June. But still, 'as a result of the registration of the player, Juventus will have to pay a wholesome amount of 3.7 million euros ($4.1 million) by July 10.'
Though the English midfielder was found nowhere near his game this season, he managed to provide mere 3 assists and could find the net just twice in his 22 appearances for the club.
Despite all the stats, Ramsey is still considered one of the best midfielders in the PL. And joining forces with Miralem Pjanic, Paulo Dybala and Sami Khedira, could certainly produce some majestic performances for The White-Blacks.
Looking at the current situation of the Unai Emery's Arsenal, Ramsey's move to the Serie A club seems like the best option for the three-time FA Cup winner. Let's hope that signing proves to be an asset for the star-studded Juventus line-up and helps them bag more trophies.
