REAL Madrid have been in contact with Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey over a stunning move to Spain.
The 28-year-old Welsh midfielder is out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the season and can sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club in January.

Arsenal have chosen not to offer to Ramsey a new deal, and he has attracted interest from Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Juventus.
According to reports, Real have already been in contact with Ramsey’s representatives.
The prospect of a move to Madrid would give the midfielder the chance to play alongside fellow Welsh star Gareth Bale, who moved to the Spanish giants five years ago.
However he would face a tough battle to get into Real’s starting XI, with the likes of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Marco Asensio, Casemiro, Isoc and Dani Ceballos competing for three places.

Currently Isco is unable to get into the first team, and the arrival of Ramsey may mean he has to find a new club.
The Spanish playmaker has fallen out of favour since Santiago Solari took over from the sacked Julen Lopetegui.
Chelsea and Manchester City have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old, who has been accused of being overweight.
Arsenal withdrew a bumper new four-year contract for Ramsey in September, alerting Europe’s top clubs.
