Aaron Ramsey is wanted by Bundesliga champions…
Read more Arsenal rumours.
Following Aaron Ramsey’s brilliant season with Arsenal, legendary manager Pep Guardiola is planning on bringing the superb midfielder to the Bundesliga…
Bayern Munich want to sign the 23-year-old, and could make a mammoth bid for his services in the coming months, reports the Daily Star.
The talismanic Spanish manager actually tried to bring Ramsey to the Nou Camp during his time at Barcelona, and now will target the goalscoring midfielder with the German champions instead.
Bayern waltzed to the Bundesliga title, but after they crashed out of the Champions League semi-finals, Guardiola is keen on bolstering his already impressive roster.
Ramsey scored the winner in Extra Time during yesterday’s FA Cup final, making it 16 goals for the season in all competitions. In fact, if he hadn’t been injured for half the campaign, he could quite possibly have challenged Liverpool’s Luis Suarez for the Player of the Year award – such was the brilliance of his form before Christmas.
Since getting himself fit again, he’s become Arsenal’s most influential player once again, and the Gunners will be completely desperate to keep hold of Ramsey, even if Bayern do make an offer for his services.
Because of his age, and the lengthy deal he’s currently contracted to, the Gunners would expect a truly astronomical fee for his services.
It’s unlikely Ramsey would actively seek a move from the Emirates though, where he has established himself as a fans’ favourite since joining from Cardiff in 2008.
After the FA Cup victory, the Welshman seemed entirely upbeat about his Arsenal future as well.
“It means a hell of a lot for us players. Over the last couple of seasons we’ve been under a bit of pressure and had a bit of stick at times for not being ruthless and not taking opportunities,” he said, reported by ESPN.
“The manager’s always believed in us, the players have always believed in the manager. We’ve come through and we’ve won something for the first time in a few seasons and hopefully this will be the first of many to come.”
Bayern could step up their pursuit of Ramsey, should they allow current midfield anchorman Javi Martinez to leave. Liverpool are being strongly linked with a move for his services, and Ramsey would provide a far more consistent offensive threat than the Spaniard should Bayern somehow manage to snare him.
