Arsenal ace Aaron Ramsey has again revealed that he has been left baffled by the club’s decision to withdraw their contract offer to him.
With his current contract set to expire at the end of the season and with no new deal in sight, Arsenal ace Aaron Ramsey looks set to begin a new challenge next year.
As noted by The Guardian, the 27-year-old has come out publicly to concede that he thought he was set to commit his future to the club, only for that offer to be withdrawn. Ramsey had been on the verge of penning a new deal at the Emirates, only for the offer to be retracted earlier this season.
And the Wales international claims he’s had no answers as to why the club withdrew the deal.
“Well, there is no contract on the table at the moment so there is nothing for me to consider or whatever,” said Ramsey.
“We all know that the contract was taken away off the table. I’m not sure exactly why because a few weeks before we sort of agreed and I was ready to sign.”
“Something happened, I am not sure exactly what, but that contract is no longer there, or nothing’s on the table.”
Meanwhile, the Arsenal stalwart was also asked if he would consider a move to Tottenham if an offer arrived. Gunners fans will undoubtedly like his answer. When asked if he would be interested in a move to Tottenham, he responded: “No,” as per the Guardian.
Ramsey has played some good football this season but Arsenal are looking for some freshness in their midfield.
While it’s bad enough for some Arsenal fans that they’ll likely be losing Ramsey, with the Metro adding that United and Chelsea could make a move, it will be a bitter blow to see him join a direct rival and potentially flourish.
