Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has made the news regarding his future, which has been rumored for some time now, official a few moments ago by announcing via social media that he has signed a pre-contract with Italian giants Juventus:

Ramsey, strangely a divisive figure during his time at Arsenal, leaves the club as one of its most decorated midfielders in the club’s illustrious history. After recovering from the gruesome assault by Stoke’s Ryan Shawcross that left him with a compound leg fracture, he was vital cog in a machine that won three FA Cups in four years’ time – two of them being match-winners – and leaves the club as the highest-scoring midfielder of all-time at Arsenal. Regardless of what you think about his traits and abilities, Ramsey had a knack for scoring some pretty special goals during extremely special moments.

As with every player that leaves Arsenal, we wish him nothing but success in his new adventures and it is our sincere desire this extra money in his pocket (£250K/per week) saves a few more rhinos than before.

Good luck and thank you for all the memories, Aaron.
