Aaron Ramsey's move to Juventus will make the Welshman the highest paid British footballer of all time, after he signed his pre-contract with the club on Monday afternoon.
Ramsey will earn an eye-watering 'basic' salary of £400k per week before tax in Turin, according to the BBC's David Ornstein.
He has signed a four-year deal with Juve, having passed a medical in January, and will join the club at the end of this season on a free transfer after 11 years at Arsenal.

Ramsey failed to agree terms on a new deal with the Gunners before his contract ran into its last six months, which allowed the midfielder to speak to clubs who expressed interest in signing the 28-year-old.
There was interest from various European giants, including Bayern Munich and PSG, but Ramsey's final decision was to join Juventus, where he will play alongside Miralem Pjanić and Blaise Matuidi in a midfield trio - quite the upgrade from Mateo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka.
