According to Jack Pitt-Brooke in the Independent, Bayern Munich are confident of signing Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer from Arsenal next summer.
The Welsh international has a little over 7 months left on his current deal and, as we all know by now, the club withdrew the offer an extension last month which signalled their intention to let him leave at the end of the season for free.
Although there is always the outside chance of a January move which would boost the transfer coffers a little bit, chances are the player would prefer to see out the remaining months and take advantage of the Bosman ruling in June.
Indeed, the 27 year old stated his intention to stay until the end of the current campaign, saying, “Would I stay for the rest of the season? Of course, yeah.
“I am contracted to Arsenal and I am going to do my best now this season to try and achieve something special.”
A move to the Bundesliga giants would be far preferable than seeing him play for another Premier League, and Ramsey has previously spoken about his desire to go and play abroad – following in the footsteps of his international colleague Gareth Bale who sometimes plays for Real Madrid between rounds of golf and groin strains.
The midfielder has made 16 appearances for the Gunners so far this season, and along with Hector Bellerin tops the Premier League assist charts for Arsenal players with four each.
