Arsene Wenger drops hint that Thomas Vermaelen is off to Manchester United

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.
