Arsenal Balls: Manchester United Pay £7m Over Asking Price For Thomas Vermaelen

by | 9th, March 2014

ARSENAL Balls: The Sun leads with an “exclusive” on “Arsenal misfit” Thomas Vermaelen.

DAVID MOYES has targeted Arsenal misfit Thomas Vermaelen to replace Manchester United hero Nemanja Vidic. The Belgian central defender is no longer a regular at the Emirates, but the Gunners would still demand a £12million fee from one of their rivals.

He is a close pal of Robin van Persie and the pair share the same agent in Kees Vos.

Why Arsenal would sell another captain to a rival side and why the Belgian would want to play for an average United team from which Van Persie might well depart in the summer is a mute point for the Sun’s Charlie Wyett. As is the news that his exclusive is that the player said  back in 2012:

“I have no intention of leaving this club. I feel at home in ­London and I feel that I have become a real Gunner. Arsenal is my club. In my eyes, they belong to the absolute elite of European top clubs. When I was young, I dreamed of playing for Ajax and Arsenal. Both dreams have come true.”
