A Rangers transfer claim has been made regarding their deal to sign Aaron Ramsey in the January window…
According to Calcio Mercato, the Gers will part way with around a net total of €3m (£2.5m) in total by the end of the player’s loan spell with the club from Juventus.
The report also states that the Italian club wanted an option to sell him permanently but the Scottish giants managed to strike a deal that does not include any obligation to buy him in the summer.
Rangers chief Ross Wilson pulled off a masterclass by being able to swoop in for the midfielder on deadline day last month.
Instead of being stuck with the possibility of Ramsey joining on a permanent basis at the end of the campaign, Wilson has wrangled a deal that works for the club and the player whilst not being ideal for Juventus. Rangers will not have to shell out on his wages on a long-term basis and the ex-Arsenal man could find himself a club in one of Europe’s top five leagues to continue his career.
This will be particularly pleasing to Rangers fans after the difficult start he has had at Ibrox. He is yet to start a match in the Premiership and has only played 30 minutes in the division, with his fitness prohibiting him from making a big impact on the pitch so far.
Therefore, supporters will be buzzing that the club will not be forced to sign him permanently as these injury issues could persist. If they brought him in on a two/three-year contract and he spent the majority of the time on the sidelines then it could have been a huge disaster for club with thousands, potentially millions, of pounds wasted because of it.
We published an article reacting to quotes from Alan Hutton that highlighted Ramsey’s impact off the pitch, explaining how his arrival has given Gio van Bronckhorst’s team a lift behind the scenes. This is another reason why fans will be delighted by this deal by Wilson as he has been able to provide the squad with a boost whilst splashing a relatively small amount of money and having the possibility of him playing games and making a difference on the pitch before the end of the season.
