Arsenal’s hopes of tying Aaron Ramsey down to a new long-term contract have reportedly hit a snag as negotiations with the midfielder have yet again broken down, according to the latest reports in the British media.
The Wales international star was rumoured to have been on the verge of putting pen to paper on fresh terms the previous week as a result of months of discussions.
According to the British tabloid newspaper The Sun, however, the continuing circus surrounding the future of Gunners CEO Ivan Gazidis has had a knock-on effect, as the north London giants’ chief executive – wanted by the Italian giants AC Milan – has yet to rubber stamp the £250,000-per-week contract.
Aaron Ramsey is said to have essentially agreed to terms with Arsenal, but growing concern regarding of Gazidis’s immediate future means that the whole process has been undermined, as the Gunners’ longest-serving player is also a target for AC Milan.
Foreign clubs can open discussions with the 27-year-old star, who will become a free agent next summer, in 13 weeks’ time.
This season, Aaron Ramsey has made 5 Premier League appearances.
