Aaron Ramsey's agents break silence on Juventus exit transfer reports

Aaron Ramsey of Juventus looks on during the UEFA Champions League group D match between Juventus and Atletico Madrid at Juventus Arena on November 26, 2019 in Turin, Italy.

Aaron Ramsey's agents have reacted to the reports that Andrea Pirlo was trying to get rid of their client.

The Italian legend took over from Maurizio Sarri as manager of Juventus last week.

His only coaching experience was being in charge of the Under-23s - a role he held for nine days before his promotion.

However, a number of reports emerged that he was ready to ruffle some feathers.

It included a summer exodus - with a number of players in the firing line.

Ramsey had been touted as one of them, despite only joining last summer on a free transfer from Arsenal.

But it has not all gone the Welshman's way this year and he has suffered from inconsistent form, injuries and a lack of game-time.

The 29-year-old made 35 appearances across all competitions but astonishingly, completed just one full match.

And with his huge £350,000-a-week wages, Pirlo had reportedly told Ramsey that he was no longer needed at the club.

But his agency, Avid Sports & Entertainment Group, have hit back at these reports.

In a simple tweet, they replied to a BBC Sport post saying: "Nonsense."

Nevertheless, Ramsey's time in Turin is set to become even tougher with the impending arrival of Arthur Melo from Barcelona.

Blaise Matuidi has lightened the load somewhat after making the move to David Beckham's Inter Miami.

And Miralem Pjanic has also left the Old Lady, going the other way and joining Barca.

But Arthur plays in exactly the same role as Ramsey, who has already been competing with the likes of Sami Khedira, Rodrigo Bentancur and Adrien Rabiot for a starting spot.

Manchester United have been long-term admirers of the Wales international and were interested in a deal last year with his Arsenal contract expiring.

Over the season, a swap deal including Paul Pogba has been mooted - something that has been described as a "gift" to Pirlo.

His former teammate Luca Toni told TuttoSport: "Knowing Andrea, he will start building from midfield. The ideal gift would be Pogba. I don't know if that's possible, but it would certainly be the best option."
