AARON RAMSEY will earn £300,000-a-week at Juventus, according to reports, which would make him the second-highest paid British footballer in history.
The Welshman, 28, is in the last six months of his contract at Arsenal and was free to negotiate with other clubs as of January 1.

And he has had a medical with the Italian giants, before agreeing a bumper contract, with a considerable signing-on fee that would set anyone up for life on its own.
Along with bonuses for appearances, the remuneration is understood to put £300,000-a-week — or £15.6million a year — making him the second-wealthiest British footballer ever, behind only Gareth Bale.
Fellow Wales star Bale is understood to be on £350,000-a-week at Real Madrid.
Ramsey is the latest in a growing trend of footballers to run down their contracts, while their agents tout them around to new clubs with a premium signing-on fee required.
