As it stands, the latter is what they’re getting and Ramsey’s agent will be delighted as he is set to pocket €9m for getting his client to Italy for free.
Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb, Gianluca Nani, former West Ham and Reading sporting director, said of Arsenal’s, €20m demands when asked if they were too much, “Well, if we see the request and evaluate what is missing at the end of the contract is an exaggeration.
