Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has agreed to join Italian giants Juventus next season in a deal that will net him in excess of $500,000 a week.
Ramsey was in the final six months of his contract with the Gunners, which made him eligible to sign a pre-contract and leave the London club for free in the summer.
"In exchange for the player's registration, Juventus will incur additional charges for € 3.7 million, payable by 10 July 2019".
Ramsey, 28, issued his own statement via Instagram.

All of the images of Ultima Thule that New Horizons sent back over the past few weeks seemed to show the rocks as being spherical. It first wowed Earth after a New Year's Day flyby that beamed back an image somewhat resembling a space snowman or BB-8.
Other clubs, including Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris St Germain, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich, were linked with the player.
The contract will be effective as of July 1 and will expire on June 30, 2023, Juventus said in a statement. "He has always been a consummate professional and will always have a special place in the hearts and memories of Arsenal fans around the world".
"I will continue to give 100 per cent and hope to finish the season strongly, before heading on to my next chapter in Turin".
Over the past decade he has played 256 Premier League games, scoring 38 top-flight goals, and winning three FA Cup and two Community Shield.
