Former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey in talks to return to Cardiff City

Wales captain Aaron Ramsey is in talks with Cardiff City about a potential return to the club, according to talkSPORT

Ramsey, who previously played for Cardiff and Arsenal, is a free agent after parting ways with OGC Nice.

The midfielder has turned down offers from Turkey for a return to the club where he began his career.

Ramsey initially left the Bluebirds in 2008 when he joined Arsenal. 

However, the 31-year-old briefly returned to Cardiff City Stadium in January 2011 for a one-month loan spell.

Ramsey began his footballing journey with Cardiff’s academy in 1999. He made history as their youngest-ever debutant at 16, making his senior debut in 2007.

The teenage prodigy appeared in the 2008 FA Cup final for Cardiff. He made 21 appearances for the club before securing a £4.8 million transfer to Arsenal.

He achieved success with Arsenal, scoring 64 goals in 369 games and winning three FA Cups.

Ramsey’s career took him to Juventus in 2019, where he notched six goals in 70 appearances. He spent the latter half of the 2021/22 season on loan at Rangers, scoring twice in 13 appearances. 

During his most recent stint at OGC Nice, Ramsey scored once in 34 games. The prospect of a return to his roots beckons for the Welsh midfielder.

Cardiff’s newly appointed manager, Erol Bulu, recently hinted at the possibility of Ramsey returning. He did not disclose details but acknowledged discussions with the three-time FA Cup winner. 

Bulu reportedly met with Ramsey in Cardiff last month as Wales faced Armenia in their 2024 European Championship qualifier.

Ramsey’s potential homecoming could be a game-changer for Cardiff.

The club narrowly avoided relegation last season after finishing 21st in the Championship table, just five points clear of the drop zone. 

With Ramsey’s quality and experience, his return to Cardiff could inject fresh enthusiasm into the club.
