Is Aaron Ramsey really worth £50million and good enough to play for Barca?

In addition, Man United are understood to be willing to part company with Northern Irish defender Jonny Evans.

IF YOU THOUGHT that Gareth Bale joining Real Madrid for a reported €100million was ridiculous, you are also likely to balk at this latest piece of transfer gossip.

The Sun claims that despite their transfer embargo, Barcelona are lining up a bid of over £50million for Bale’s Welsh teammate Aaron Ramsey, as the Catalan side look to build on this year’s success.

Should he ultimately depart, Ramsey would become the ninth player to leave Arsenal for Barcelona since 2000.

The apparent fee may seem like an exorbitant sum for a player who only in the past two seasons has begun to live up to the hype that always surrounded him as an up-and-coming youngster.

That said, when you consider that Bale cost Real €100million, while Raheem Sterling is also understood to be valued at around £50million, the Ramsey figure begins to make more sense.

And speaking of Bale, the former Tottenham star continues to be linked with a Man United move, while Bastian  Schweinsteiger is also reportedly on Louis van Gaal’s radar.

In addition, the Red Devils are understood to be willing to part company with Northern Irish defender Jonny Evans, as Tottenham and Everton prepare to compete for his signature.
