Aaron Ramsey will make a 13-hour round trip to support Arsenal when they face Chelsea in the Europa League final in Baku.
The Welshman will cut short a family holiday in Portugal to set off on the 6,500-mile journey to Azerbaijan’s Olympic Stadium, The Sun reports.
After suffering a minor hamstring tear in the Europa League quarter-final second leg against Napoli, Ramsey saw his time at Arsenal come to a devastating end, as he was ruled out for the remainder of the season and a chance to play in the final.
Ramsey’s contract expires at the end of the campaign and he has agreed a four-year deal with Serie A champions Juventus worth a reported £400,000 per week.
He will officially become their player on July 1.

Having failed to finish in the top four, Arsenal’s best route into the Champions League is now through winning the Europa League.
Ramsey, who joined the Gunners in 2008, bid an emotional farewell to the club following their home match with Brighton.
“It’s very emotional, it’s been a hell of a journey,” he said.
His voice cracking, he added: “Eleven years of my life, so much has happened in that, when I look back. You can tell by my voice how much it means to me.
“I’m just grateful for the opportunity to play for this great club and spend so many years here.
“I spent 11 years here, I came here at 17-years-old a boy, and I’m leaving a man. I’ve got a family, my wife, my kids, so much has happened, I’m just grateful for the opportunity here.
“Obviously I’m really excited for the new challenge and new chapter in my life, but today it’s all about this.
“This is where I grew up, I just want to take this in today and let it settle in for a few more days before I can really look forward and concentrate on that.”
