Aaron Ramsey would fit in well at Manchester United should he decide to leave Juventus and return to the Premier League, as per Chris Coleman.

Ramsey would be able to handle the pressure of playing at Manchester United, believes former Wales boss Chris Coleman.

The Welshman was scouted by the Red Devils as a teenager while at Cardiff City but eventually joined rivals Arsenal.

Last summer, Ramsey left the Emirates and joined Juventus on a free transfer but that hasn’t gone so well for him.

The 29-year-old has seen less than 900 minutes of league action under Maurizio Sarri and there is belief he is in search of regular game-time.

All of that has seen Ramsey linked with an exit from Juventus, with United the club rumored to be in the driving seat for his signature.

Coleman, who is well familiar with the midfielder with Wales has backed him to make an impact if he does join Manchester United.

“I’ve been fortunate to see the best of Aaron when I was manager of Wales. He’s at his best when he’s under a bit of pressure, when he’s playing against the best teams and when he’s playing in the big games,” Coleman told the Mirror.

“If it’s not going to happen for him at Juventus, he’s definitely the type of player who can handle playing for Manchester United.

“When you play for a club like Manchester United the jersey is much heavier than when you are with a smaller club in the Premier League.

“If you play for a big club you’ve got to handle that extra weight. He certainly has the appetite for that.”

Still on transfer talk, Ramsey could well be used as pawn with Juventus still trying to re-sign Pogba from Manchester United.
