Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan blamed for Aaron Ramsey exit

Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey has been confirmed to join Juventus at the end of the season. He will join Juventus on a free transfer and earn a staggering £400,000-per-week. Arsenal legend Ian Wright is angry that his former club allowed Ramsey to join the long list of players to leave for free. He also blamed Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan  for their huge wages they earn at Arsenal as there was nothing left in the kitty to offer Ramsey. Ozil earns a weekly pay packet of £350,000, while Mkhitaryan is on around £200,000-per-week. “Ramsey is just another player who got into a situation where he could run the contract down,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 live. “And when you consider the contracts that have been given out, they just couldn’t afford to keep Aaron Ramsey to keep him alongside the players they’ve got with the contracts that they’re on. “So unfortunately we lose him and, you know, he’s been magnificent. “Maybe he was never really appreciated at Arsenal. “I think what people will see now is when you watch how he plays and the professionalism, he’s one of those players that, no matter how poorly Arsenal were playing, he never hid. “Never hid, always showed for the ball, got loads of stick from loads of people but continued to try to make things happen in the way he sees fit and the way he plays football. “The fact is we’re losing a great player.” Ramsey scored the winning in goal in two FA Cup finals for Arsenal and is the club’s highest-scoring central midfielder ever.
