- Aaron Ramsey is reportedly ‘unwanted’ by new Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo
- The 29-year-old has had an underwhelming debut season with the Italians
- Pirlo is planning a summer rebuild after their elimination from Europe to Lyon
- Ramsey has been viewed as surplus to requirements by the Juventus icon
The 29-year-old has had an underwhelming debut season in Turin, with a series of injuries and a lack of minutes blighting the Welshman’s contributions to the all-conquering Italians.
Ramsey has scored three goals and provided one assist in his 24 Serie A outings for the Old Lady this season.
Aaron Ramsey is reportedly ‘unwanted’ by Juventus with Andrea Pirlo looking to offload him
The 29-year-old has had an underwhelming debut season in Turin with game time limited
And according to The Mirror, Pirlo is looking to offload the Welshman, who is reportedly on £250,000-per-week, as part of a summer clear out ahead of the 2020-21 season.
The Juventus legend also wants to sell Gonzalo Higuain, Daniele Rugani, Sami Khedira and Mattia De Sciglio.
With the likes of Adrien Rabiot, Rodrigo Bentancur and Arthur Melo, who is set to arrive from Barcelona, ahead of him in the pecking order, Ramsey’s first-team opportunities will be limited.
New Juventus boss Pirlo, who was appointed on Saturday, is looking to rebuild his squad
The Old Lady icon has replaced Maurizio Sarri, who was sacked after the Lyon defeat
Juventus are in need of a rebuild having crashed out of the Champions League round of 16 last Friday when they lost on aggregate to French outfit Lyon.
The abysmal display from the Old Lady left Juve president Andrea Agnelli with no option but to dismiss the coach, Maurizio Sarri, despite the 61-year-old winning the Serie A title in his first season at the helm.
On Monday, midfielder Blaise Matuidi edged closer to joining MLS side Inter Miami. The 33-year-old underwent a medical with the American outfit and has reportedly signed a three-year deal.
The Frenchman knows David Beckham, the owner of the new franchise, from their time playing together at Paris Saint-Germain.
