Newcastle United target, Aaron Ramsey, has been backed for a move to a club like Manchester United this summer by former manager Chris Coleman.
Coleman, who had Ramsey as part of his squad with Wales, has insisted that the midfielder can handle the pressure despite a poor spell with Juventus.
Ramsey moved to Juve from Arsenal on a free transfer. However, he has struggled to hold down a regular place in the first XI in what is a massively talented squad in Turin.
Newcastle have been credited in recent days with an interest in the Welshman. However, Coleman believes Ramsey could flourish at Old Trafford if necessary.
“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,” Coleman told the Mirror.
“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.”
Ramsey is believed to be among a number of players Juventus are willing to let go as they seek to bring Paul Pogba back to the Turin.
And despite Ramsey’s struggles, Coleman understands why the midfielder made the move in the first place.
“I understand why Aaron went to Juventus. They are a great club and they always have a great chance of winning the league,” he added.
“It’s not a walk in the park when you move from one country to the next, a different type of football, a different ask. But he wants to be in the starting eleven. In my opinion, he’s good enough to be in it.”

It’s clear that Chris Coleman is a big fan of Aaron Ramsey and sees him as a top player. It’s little surprise, then, to see him big up the midfielder as a potential Man United player.
But if Newcastle do get their takeover sorted, Ramsey could be the perfect sort of leader for them.
He’ll be itching to get first-team football back under his belt on a regular basis. Furthermore, Newcastle wouldn’t have to worry about him settling into the PL.
As far as good signings for Newcastle’s new regime, they don’t come much better than Ramsey.
