Aaron Ramsey is now set to move to Cardiff City this summer in what could be a sensational summer for the Bluebirds, with Gareth Bale rumored to be.
Ramsey has one year left on his Juventus contract but is likely to leave Turin after a lukewarm loan spell with Rangers last season. The 31-year-old still has much to offer, as Wales fans will attest, but he is thought to be surplus to requirements with the Old Lady and a summer departure looks increasingly likely.
Italy claims Juventus could tear up his reported £400,000-a-week contract just to get him off their payroll.
The Telegraph reported earlier this month that Ramsey’s former club Cardiff has a “golden chance” of signing the playmaker and claims he is now part of the conversation with Bale.

Just 10 days ago, Ramsey was priced at 2/1 to sign for the Bluebirds, ahead of Rangers (4/1), Everton (6/1), Southampton (12/1), Leeds United (16/1) and Derby County (33/1).
Those prices have now changed, with the Bluebirds odds shortened to 8/13 for Ramsey to make a remarkable return to the club where he started his career. For reference, the odds of the other clubs are now as follows: Rangers (9/2), Everton (8/1), Southampton (16/1), Leeds United (20/1) and Derby County (40/1) .
Ramsey has previously refused to rule out a return to his first club, where he rose through the academy before making 22 appearances for the senior team. In April 2020, in an Instagram Q&A with fans about a return to Cardiff, Ramsey said: “They’ve helped me become a professional footballer. So why not? Who knows?”
A double whammy for Ramsey and Bale may sound odd, but rumors about the pair just aren’t going to go away. Ramsey’s international manager, Rob Page, has urged all his players to get regular playing time ahead of the World Cup in November. Ramsey would definitely fall into that category.
