Newcastle officially signed Arsenal Star
Aaron Ramsey has one of the most important games of his life coming up at the end of March, but no one knows where he’ll be.
Ramsey’s Wales face Austria in their World Cup playoff semi-final in just under 80 days, and while that has been ample time to go multiple circuits around the globe for quite some time, it has long been expected that Ramsey’s globetrotting will come to a stop this month.
Of course, joining Juventus from Arsenal in the summer of 2019 was a financially rewarding option, but it was also a risky one.
He is now at his best when he is one of the players expected to inspire, something he did occasionally at Arsenal but never consistently at Juve, because his outright quality shines through in an attacking sense, but his hard work can also be appreciated off the ball when players of lesser quality are forced to dig in.
Yes, he’s had injuries, but he’s been there for Wales almost every time they’ve needed him in recent years.
There were the two goals against Hungary that ensured qualification for Euro 2020, as well as his goal and good performance against Turkey.
Could a club in the thick of a relegation battle, such as Newcastle, put up with that? If they succeed, they might be handsomely rewarded.
Ramsey’s next phase of his career will be focused on whether or not he will be in Qatar next winter.
If he is, the prospect of returning to the global stage will undoubtedly motivate him to play as well for his club as he did for his country.
