Ramsey is set to become the highest-paid British player of all time

The 28-year-old has penned a four-year deal with the Italian giants and will join them in the summer when he leaves Arsenal as a free agent.

Arsenal midfielder, Aaron Ramsey, has signed a pre-contract agreement with Juventus, for a deal worth just over £400,000 a week, the BBC reports.

"As you may have already heard, I have agreed a pre-contract with Juventus football club", Ramsey wrote.

Ramsey will reportedly be second on the club's payroll behind Cristiano Ronaldo, who takes home an estimated $5.3 million per month before tax.

The move brings to an end Ramsey's 11-year spell with the Gunners having moved from Cardiff in 2008.

The same report has claimed that the Welshman "passed a two-part medical in January", having made a decision to join Juve despite interest from a number of European clubs, including Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.

While Ramsey is unlikely to challenge for a starting position in the attacking unit, the Welshman does have an eye for goal and has hit double figures across a season on three occasions. You welcomed me as a teenager and have been there for me through all the highs and lows I have encountered during my time at the club.

"I will continue to give the team 100 per cent and hope to finish the season strongly, before heading on to my next chapter in Turin".
