Aaron Ramsey

Juventus plan to sell Aaron Ramsey, Adrien Rabiot and Arthur Melo ahead of next season after leaving the trio out of their pre-season tour of America.

The three central midfielders are not viewed as part of Juventus’ long-term tactical strategy, following the free transfer of Paul Pogba from Manchester United earlier this month.

The Italian giants are mostly keen to offload each of their hefty salary packages.

Both Ramsey and Rabiot are pocketing a wage worth in the region of €7million every year, and Arthur is believed to earn that figure in bonuses, according to Tuttosport.

Ramsey played just five times before his loan spell with Cardiff at the tail end of last campaign and has since reportedly rejected interest from Galatasaray and Andrea Pirlo’s club Fatih Karagumruk.

Rabiot notched 45 appearances in all competitions at the Allianz Stadium last season, while Arthur made 31.

Viewing the Frenchman’s market value at €20m, Juventus are considering a swap deal with PSG for Rabiot and Leandro Paredes, the Italian outlet has claimed, although no formal negotiations have yet been carried out.

Meanwhile, ex-Barcelona playmaker Arthur is keen to leave the club having struggled to impress in Serie A.

The Brazilian has only recorded one goal and one assist in 63 appearances since arriving in Turin.

Arthur’s agent Federico Pastorello is believed to be well connected with Premier League clubs, but Arsenal are reportedly the only top six side holding any interest in the midfielder.
