It has been the rumoured transfer since the start of the summer, but it now seems that Thomas Vermaelen is moving closer to a move from Arsenal to Manchester United after the latest comments from Gunner boss Arsene Wenger.
Arsene Wenger was speaking to the television networks following Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Boreham Wood on Saturday, he said:
“I cannot guarantee he’ll stay, but should he go I will bring another centre-back in for sure”
Thomas Vermaelen and his girlfriend are currently, conveniently, on holiday with Robin van Persie and wife Bouchra.
It has been rumoured that Vermaelen was set for a move to Old Trafford when fanzine Red Issue revealed discussions with Moaroune Fellaini on a train journey from London to Manchester, insisting back in March that Vermaelen had already agreed personal terms to join the reds this summer.
