Aaron Ramsey's future up in the air as Rangers and Juventus appear to have made decision on him
Aaron Ramsey appears to need a new club in the summer as he looks set to return to Juventus from Rangers but not to stay, Gazzetta dello Sport says.
The Welsh loan star has struggled for fitness in Glasgow much like he has in Turin, and is currently fighting to be available for the Europa League second-leg with RB Leipzig tomorrow (5 May).
The Serie A giant look to be expecting him back at the conclusion to his loan deal at Ibrox, but with no prospect of staying on at the club.
He is earning a reported £400,000-a-week at the Allianz Stadium, but the club want that number shed as they concentrate on younger candidates in midfield.
Gazzetta dello Sport’s report says: “In addition to the expected return of [Manuel] Locatelli and [Weston] McKennie, as well as the return from Ramsey’s loan (which will not be to stay), there is a young trend that Juve has long opened.”
The Welsh star certainly seems to have no future in Italy, but if they expect him back it suggests that Giovanni van Bronckhorst isn’t planning to keep him either.
Considering his availability problems, which made him a possibility in January originally, it is perhaps no surprise.
Unless he makes a major contribution to a trophy between now and the end of the season it would even be a stretch to call his time at the club a qualified success.
He was just starting to establish himself in the first team in recent weeks, scoring in an Old Firm derby along the way, when he was again ruled out following the cup win over Celtic.
He would have had to agree to a drastic reduction in wages to stay with Gers in any case, and with his output not justifying the risk of paying him a large amount, the Light Blues look set to be the second club to say no to him at once.
