Juventus' wage package for Ramsey ended United, Liverpool interest

Manchester United and Liverpool are understood to have snubbed the opportunity to sign Aaron Ramsey as they were put off by the wage demands of the Arsenal midfielder.



The Wales international recently reached a pre-contract agreement with Juventus and he would be joining them in the summer when his Gunners contract expires.

According to Evening Standard, Ramsey had the option of finalising a deal with either United and Liverpool during the off-season but the duo were put off after getting to know of the hefty package offered by Juventus.

Ramsey is currently on a £110,000-a-week salary at the Emirates but he is expected to triple his wages with the Serie A holders having agreed to pay him a staggering £400,000 on a weekly basis.

The Welshman has spent the past 11 years with the Gunners where he has helped them win three FA Cups, most notably. He has made over 350 appearances for them and remains their highest scoring central midfielder in history.
