Cardiff City’s teenage star Aaron Ramsey looks set to snub a move to his dream club Manchester United in preference to a switch to Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal.


The move is not good news for Dave Jones and Peter Ridsdale who openly encouraged a move to Manchester United, although the Arsenal deal will see us pick up more cash up-front.


Ramsey was not keen to immediately go out on loan and is likely to get more of a chance in the Gunners’ first team under Wenger’s strong youth policy. Another major factor for Rambo would be the presence in North London of friend and former Cardiff City team-mate Chris Gunter, now playing for arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur.


It seems we’ve seen the last of Aaaron Ramsey in a Bluebirds shirt. He has a big future, and it lies elsewhere. £5million is a great deal of money for a player with such little gametime and experience but we look forward to watching him flourish at the Emirates’ and for Wales.

  • Good luck to him .. unfortunately there’ll now be lots of clubs with the strikers we so desperately need who’ll be licking their lips at upping prices – the £5million won’t last long … why are we so agitated about our relatively piddly ‘large debt’ when Man Utd and Chelsea owe zillions?

  • If he’s signed for Arsenal he would be better staying and learning from Wenger than going out on loan. I just cannot see him getting into the first team for a while. Just look how long it took Walcoot who still isn’t a regular.
