Aaron Ramsey never played in his best position at Arsenal, claims Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici
- The 28-year-old will join Juventus as a free agent from Arsenal on July 1
- He has signed a pre-contract agreement worth at least £400,000 per week
- Ramsey will make at least £83.2million over his four years with the Italian giants
Ramsey signed a staggering £400,000-a-week pre-contract deal at Juventus on Monday, that will net him £83million over four years.
But having switched between midfield and the wing in his 11 years at Arsenal, Juve believe Ramsey has still not found his true place on the field.

Sporting director Fabio Paratici, who played a key role in the recruitment of the Welshman, believes he will be best employed as the most attacking member of a three-man midfield.
‘Ramsey’s a player who, in my opinion, still hasn’t found his position because he’s never played in a three, which is his role as it lets him make runs in behind,’ Paratici told Gazzetta dello Sport. ‘Failing that, he can play as a dynamic attacking midfielder.
‘We don’t have another player like him in our squad. He has more technique than our midfielders but less versatile.
‘He’s also less stubborn and less tactical, even though he runs a lot. He’s a man for the final pass and he has an eye for goal.’
The mouthwatering figures mean that the 28-year-old will earn at least £83.2million there
