So, this happened:
And, honestly, it couldn’t be funnier.
Aaron Ramsey is one of the most important players on the team. In 2013-14, he was central to Arsenal’s dominance of the league in the first half of the season, in which they spend 128 days at the top of the table. Once Aaron Ramsey went out injured (along with Mesut Ozil and the untimely death of Mikel Arteta’s legs), Arsenal’s season was practically over, and without a proper partner he hasn’t been given the opportunity to fully exercise his potential since, despite scoring a cracking winner in the 2014 FA Cup Final.
Now, after a European Championship that saw him widely considered one of the tournament’s best players and after Arsenal have finally purchased a worthy successor to Arteta to play alongside Ramsey in his best box-to-box role, there is no way that we’d let him go unless Milan came in with an absolutely astronomical bid.
Count me as skeptical.
