Vermaelen Deal Talk
The press is still running with the story that Manchester United, under our new manager Louis Van Gaal, are keen to bring the Arsenal defender, Thomas Vermaelen to Old Trafford.
Apparently, a fee of £10 million is being mentioned with it also being inferred that Vermaelen is seen as an ideal experienced replacement for the departed dup of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.
Vermaelen, now 28 years of age, has one year left on his current contract at Arsenal and the speculation doing the rounds also infers that the Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, could be interested in doing a player plus cash deal that would, quite perhaps, see either Tom Cleverley or Chris Smalling make the move in the opposite direction.
We`ll do our best to keep you abreast of any developments!
