RYAN GIGGS has once again had his say on the future of Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey.
And the Wales manager simply wants his star midfielder to get regular game time moving forward.
Starsport understands Manchester United and Liverpool are looking at Ramsey, who is set to leave the Emirates in 2019.
The 27-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and it is now clear he won’t be staying beyond then.
Arsenal have withdrawn their offer of a new deal and no agreement will be reached over fresh terms.
Ramsey is set to hold out until the summer rather than quit the Gunners in January.
And he will have a host of suitors looking to snap him up, with Arsenal’s Premier League rivals United and Liverpool keen.
Chelsea were also in the hunt but are now reconsidering their interest given the strong form of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley under Maurizio Sarri this term.
United legend Giggs, who needs Ramsey in top form and peak condition for international football, wants him to join a club where he is guaranteed minutes.
“I just want him playing”
“I’ve been asked a lot about Aaron Ramsey leaving Arsenal next summer,” Giggs told Sky Sports.
“All I can say is that when he comes to camp with us he’s always ready, he’s a great professional and this contract situation has never affected him so far.
“Of course you want your players settled but from my point of view it’s just a case of him playing regularly, that’s all you want as an international manager.
“Wherever that may be is obviously out of my hands but I just want him playing.
“He won’t be short of offers as he’s a talented player. He’s one of those players that, if he plays a full season, will get 10-15 goals from midfield and that’s a very attractive player to have in any side.
“He’s friends with Gareth Bale so obviously he’ll be able to tell him what it’s like to play abroad and Aaron’s certainly got the talent to play anywhere in Europe but that will totally be his decision.
“As long as he’s playing regular football, that’s all I really care about.”
Ramsey is likely to feature tomorrow when Arsenal host interested Liverpool in their Premier League showdown (5.30pm).
