Ed Woodward set to sign former Arsenal midfielder for Manchester United

By | February 28, 2020

Man Utd executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is reportedly interested in the prospect of a transfer deal for Juve midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The Wales international has struggled since leaving Arsenal for Juventus this campaign but previously showed himself to be a world-class performer in the Premier League.

Aaron Ramsey could now be a useful addition for Manchester United in that problem area of midfield, with upgrades surely still needed on the likes of Andreas Pereira, even if winter signing Bruno Fernandes has got off to an impressive start.

According to Tuttosport, as translated by the Daily Express, Aaron Ramsey could make his way to Manchester United as part of a deal for Paul Pogba, and the ex-Gunner could no doubt make an ideal replacement for the Frenchman in that position.

The report explains that Ed Woodward is ‘teased’ by the prospect of this exchange, so we take that to mean he quite likes the idea, even if it’s a slightly odd translation.

Aaron Ramsey could probably do with returning to England after his challenging time in Italy, though one also has to wonder how tempting it would be for him to make a move to Old Trafford right now given their difficult campaign and probable lack of Champions League football next term.
