Aaron Ramsey ‘unwanted’ by Pirlo as new Juventus boss plans to flog ex-Arsenal star in transfer overhaul

AARON Ramsey is facing the boot from Juventus as new boss Andrea Pirlo plots a massive summer clearout. 2 Aaron Ramsey has had a disappointing season at Juve and now faces the boot under new boss Pirlo Despite pocketing a reported £400,000 a week, the Welshman managed just 24 Serie A appearances and three goals under Maurizio Sarri. And following the former Chelsea boss's sacking on Saturday, new manager Pirlo is ready to move the midfielder on, the Daily Mail claims. That includes a move back to the Premier League in a swap deal for Manchester United's Paul Pogba. And Chelsea were given the option of taking him last month in another swap deal that would have seen Jorginho once again linking up with his old Blues and Napoli mentor Sarri in Italy.

Pirlo, 41, wants a massive revamp of the squad following the disappointing Champions League exit to Lyon on Saturday night. As well as Ramsey, the club legend is looking to offload at least another seven players including Chelsea flop Gonzalo Huguain and Manchester United target Douglas Costa. Pirlo is said to be trying to reunite Real Madrid playmaker Isco with Ronaldo in a bid to get the most out of the Portuguese.

The former Italy international midfielder was named as the surprise choice to replace Maurizio Sarri as Juventus manager last weekend.

Although he masterminded a successful defence of the Serie A title, Sarri failed to win the full trust of the club's hierarchy and his fate was sealed following last week's Champions League demise at the hands of Lyon. Ramsey joined Juventus last summer on a free transfer from the Gunners, but struggled to adapt to Sarri's demands and was hampered by several injuries. Andrea Pirlo was named as Maurizio Sarri's successor as Juventus manager last weekend (Picture: Getty) Mikel Arteta is looking to strengthen his midfield this summer, with the likes of Matteo Guendouz and Lucas Torreira set to leave, but is unlikely to make a move for his former Arsenal team-mate given Ramsey's reported £400,000-a-week salary.

The 29-year-old Welsh international featured just 11 times for Juventus this season, and should Pirlo be looking for a player in his own image, then Ramsey would be ill-suited.

Transfers Ousmane Dembele touted as Jadon Sancho alternative for Manchester United 6 HOURS AGO Gazzetta first linked him to a move to Spanish champions Real Madrid, and on the surface the move makes sense with Isco going the other way. Neither Juventus nor Real are flush with cash this summer, and swapping the players would allow a fresh start for both.

Transfer news LIVE - Manchester United frustrated by Jadon Sancho demands, Aaron Ramsey to leave? Pogba, too, might even offer a target for an exchange, with the French World Cup winner often linked with a return to Juventus, where he played his best football.

Reports from July suggest that a proposed swap with Tanguy Ndombele and Ramsey already failed, with Spurs not keen. If Juventus are willing to take the hit on their valuation for Ramsey then perhaps they could add some cash to the proposed deal. Transfers Transfer news LIVE - Manchester United turn to Ousmane Dembele, Aaron Ramsey to leave? Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey is unwanted by new Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo and is set to leave this summer, according to reports. The Mirror say Ramsey will be told he can leave Turin as part of a big summer clear-out, putting Manchester United on alert.

The Premier League club have been strongly linked with the former Arsenal man in recent months. Ramsey, 29, started only 11 Serie A matches last season and is said to be on £250,000-a-week after his free transfer move last year. Juve are reportedly keen on trying to bring Paul Pogba back, with Ramsey previously being linked with being part of any deal. Pirlo was announced as the new Juventus head coach on Sunday to replace Maurizio Sarri. Aaron Ramsey will be allowed to leave Juventus on a free transfer this summer just over 12 months after he joined from Arsenal, according to transfer expert Ian McGarry. He signed a four-year deal with Juventus and won the Serie A title in his first campaign at the club. However, Ramsey made just 11 league starts under Maurizio Sarri and struggled with injury problems. That led to Sarri being sacked by the club at the weekend and the former Chelsea boss was replaced by newly-appointed under-21s manager Andrea Pirlo. Reports have since claimed Ramsey will be allowed to leave the club this summer.
