Thomas Vermaelen has admitted that a move to Manchester United would be too good to turn down, according to the Daily Mail. Louis van Gaal traditionally likes one left-footed and one right-footed centre-back on his sides, so this transfer would make sense in that regard.
Vermaelen, 28, is frustrated by a lack of game time at Arsenal, and is ready to quit the Emirates despite being club captain. The deal is thought to be worth around £12million, although no deal between the two clubs is in place just yet.
Arsenal will be desperate to keep hold of Vermaelen, after already losing Bacary Sagna on a free transfer to Manchester City. The Gunners have lost countless players to both United and City, and it looks as though the Belgian centre-back could be the next in a long line of people to turn their back on Wenger’s side.
