Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has agreed to join Italian giants Juventus next season in a deal that will net him in excess of $500,000 a week.

The contract will be effective as of July 1 and will expire on June 30, 2023, Juventus said in a statement.

Ramsey failed to agree terms on a new deal with the Gunners before his contract ran into its last six months, which allowed the midfielder to speak to clubs who expressed interest in signing the 28-year-old.

A statement from the club read, "Juventus Football Club announces that Aaron Ramey will officially be a Juventus player from 1 July 2019".

Big Snowstorm Possible Monday Night - Tuesday
The US has seen some bitterly cold temperatures this year, as parts of the country are still thawing out from lows of -50C. Localized power outages possible, and they warn that rapidly accumulating snow could make travel hard over some locations.

According to a BBC report, Ramsey will earn over £400,000 a week, making him the highest-earning British player ever based on basic salary. You welcomed me as a teenager and have been there for me through all the highs and lows I have encountered during my time at the club.

With his current deal expiring in the summer, Ramsey had been free to talk to overseas clubs about a move since January, and Juventus always appeared to be the strongest suitor for his services. It is with a heavy heart that I leave after 11 incredible years in north London.

Ramsey - who has won three FA Cups at the London club - has passed a medical with the Turin club. "He has always been a consummate professional and will always have a special place in the hearts and memories of Arsenal fans around the world".
