Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey turned down offers from a handful of European clubs including Real Madrid and Barcelona before reaching his pre-contract agreement with Italian giants Juventus.

Ramsey, who will become the third Welshman to ever play in Serie A, will be following in the footsteps of Emre Can, Dani Alves and Sami Khedira to have moved to Juventus on a free transfer.

"Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Paris-Saint Germain a very good offer from them as well,  Bayern Munich and some preliminary talks with Barcelona as well, so Ramsey had the upper hand in these negotiations.

There was huge interest for Ramsey from a number of Europe’s leading clubs,” Ornstein told the Football Daily podcast, quoted by the Daily Star.

It's been known for some time that the 28-year-old would be leaving Arsenal on a free transfer at the end of the season after failing to agree terms over a new deal with the club, but his highly anticipated move to Turin was only ?announced earlier this week.

Juventus have a strong recent history of signing players on free transfers, while Arsenal have cemented a different reputation following another disastrous case of a star player running down his contract in north London.

Unsurprisingly, Juventus weren't the only club who were interested in signing Ramsey this summer, but journalist  David Ornstein claims that the Welshman picked the Bianconeri ahead of other teams for footballing reasons.
