According to former Chelsea and Aston Villa striker Tony Cascarino has claimed that Arsenal withdrew their contract talks from Aaron Ramsey because of new manager Unai Emery, who claimed that the Welsh won’t be a regular in his starting team.
The Wales International will be be club-less at the end of the season with his contract at the verge of expiration.
The ex-Chelsea striker believes the club would had first checked with new manager Unai Emery if the Welshman would be a first choice midfielder for manager.
“That would tell me that the manager has had to have stepped in on negotiations,” Cascarino speaking of the Ramsey’s contract talks talkSPORT.
“The obvious conversation is the club say to him ‘where is your standing on Aaron Ramsey?’.
“‘He’s not going to play, he’s not going to be in my first team, I’ll use him as a sub’.
“They’ll then have to rethink and say ‘well if he’s just going to be a sub and coming off the bench and being in and out the team, we can’t offer him that amount of money’.”
With the transfer saga going on with Ramsey, Juventus have not failed to express their interest.
“It’s not a bad choice to have, Juve. It’s a fantastic football club,” he continued.
“He’s going to get a lot of money previously because when you go abroad, you get a signing-on fee and get it all up front.
“It’s not done the same way as in England, where you’d get it over the period of your contract.
“So that’s the big attraction of going abroad.
“Now Juve may look at it and think ‘well if it doesn’t work out, we can easily get £10m-15m back for him’.”
