Yesterday it seemed as if Ramsey was all but ours. Today, it is a different story; with bids from Everton and Arsenal thought to have also been accepted by the Welsh-based club.

So, 17-year old Ramsey, fresh out of school has the mouth-watering decision I think most of us would like to be able to make….whether to join Manchester United, Arsenal or Everton.

Though United are the bookie’s favourites to land the versatile midfielder, all three teams have pretty strong cases for thinking they are the ideal choice for the youngster.

Arsenal have a long history of producing young stars into some of the world’s best players, and their is no reason Ramsey couldnt do the same. Everton, have the lure of realistic first team football from the offset. Whereas we have an equally good record of producing great young players, we are one of the most successful clubs in world football and we have possibly the greatest Welsh player of all time…Ryan Giggs.

Indeed, Giggsy could be key to wrapping up a deal for Ramsey; who is a keen admirer of the 34-year old. Speaking earlier on in the season, Ramsey was quoted as saying:

“Ryan is my all-time Welsh hero. He has played at the highest level for Manchester United and in all the major tournaments. He has always been a good ambassador for Welsh football. When he captained Wales his flair and pace was magic to watch.”


So, could Giggsy be the key to securing his signature? Who knows, we will have to wait and see. One thing is for sure is that this kid must be seriously good if he has three of the country’s top clubs interested….as well as Liverpool.
