The German giants Bayern Munich are now leading the race to sign the Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal in the January transfer window. Earlier both Liverpool as well as Chelsea had been very keen to sign up Aaron Ramsey, but after thinking long and hard both withdrew their interest in the Welsh midfielder the reason being his age as he is now 29 year old , and he is slowly turning into a injury prone player and is missing quite a few games. But now the German giants Bayern Munich are have had very fruitful talks and he has decided to join Bayern Munich, as he will be a free agent in the summer transfer window. Bayern Munich want to buy him as a free agent and compensate him with a big weekly salary. His problems at Arsenal was that he wanted a vey high weekly salary , and Arsenal were not keen to give that sort of cash to a player who would be turning 30, thirty next year. At present Aaron Ramsey was getting a weekly salary of 110,000 one hundred and ten thousand pounds, and one report said he was asking for a weekly salary of 275,000, two hundred and seventy five thousand pounds. So Arsenal withdrew their contract offer.
