RAM­SEY’S REAL STEAL

Span­ish gi­ants eye Jan­uary move

Irish Sunday Mirror - - SPORT - BY STEVE BATES

REAL MADRID are plot­ting a sen­sa­tional move for Aaron Ram­sey in Jan­uary.

The Ar­se­nal mid­fielder can sign a pre-con­tract agree­ment with con­ti­nen­tal clubs in the new year – be­fore be­com­ing a free agent in the sum­mer. The 28-year-old (left) is re­garded highly at the Bern­abeu and con­tact has al­ready been made.

Madrid’s in­ter­est throws up the tan­ta­lis­ing prospect for Ram­sey of team­ing up with fel­low Welsh­man Gareth Bale,

who left Tot­ten­ham to join the Span­ish gi­ants in an £85mil­lion deal five years ago.

News of Madrid’s in­ter­est will worry Bay­ern Mu­nich and Ju­ven­tus, who are also both keen to land Ram­sey.

Bay­ern have been long­stand­ing ad­mir­ers of Ram­sey and they are de­ter­mined to snap up the tal­ented star.

But the Ger­mans fear they may be blown out of the wa­ter on wages.

Ram­sey’s wife Colleen gave birth to twin boys in Oc­to­ber, but the Ar­se­nal star isn’t averse to a new chal­lenge abroad.

WALES PAL: Gareth Bale
