Nothing strange about it. He wanted his wage to be on a par with Ozils. There was no chance of that happening at Arsenal.

Don't get me wrong, he is a good player but for two many of the big games in the league and champions league when the tough got going he disappeared. 

The fact he will be getting 400k p/w says more about Juventus and their judgement than it does about Arsenal.

Nothing to do with no transfer fee. If they were to buy him they have tp pay 50-60m and pay him so it would normally be more expensive deal than the 80million in wages. 

But still 80 million for four years work - these figures are off the scales these days

Actually it says everything about Arsenal - at least during Wenger's last years in charge. That is, they're letting a valuable player leave on a free, who's approaching his peak years at 28, after having been a decade at the club.
It's the same cackhandedness as saw them lose Wilshere on a free when they could have got a fee several times previously. 
Ditto Sanchez, for whom they got a much inferior swap in Mhikytarian (valued at £30m?), even despite two of the richest clubs in the world being interested.

And if they're not careful, they'll repeat that sequence of screw-ups with Ozil, too.

Exactly. Had Arsenal sold him six months ago for, say, £40m, and the player got £200k per week, the cost to Juve would have been just the same and no-one would have thought more of it. 
Though Arsenal would have been better off. Obviously.

Not at all (imo).

The only real question is whether Juve can afford to pay those wages without going bust. And with their being perennial champions of Italy and all the revenue which that and CL football brings etc, I'd imagine they can.

Assuming so, the real test should be to ask Juve fans which they would prefer: to see this money going back into the club to strengthen the playing squad with signings like Ramsey, or out of the club to strengthen the Agnelli family's bank balance?

(It can hardly be needed to improve facilities etc, since they've not long moved into a new stadium)

Would agree with you Terri, if there's a chance that a player is going to let his contract run down and leave for free, you should be selling them. Ramsey's case is a curious one as the club took the offer off the table. Surely they would know he could leave for free, especially given the lack of funds available to sign players on a permanent basis, as stated by Emery.

Just a point about his wages- the Italian media are saying hes on 240k a week gross. This story about 400k a week seems to be coming from one 'source' and everyone else is is following it.
