Arsenal set asking price for Vermaelen
The Sun says Vermaelen is refusing to discuss a new contract with Arsenal, who are holding out for a £10m fee to sell the Belgium defender.
However, Barcelona are also keen and the Gunners would prefer to sell to a club abroad.
Both Barca and United have discussed terms with Arsenal, but neither club have indicated a willingness to go higher than £8 million for Vermaelen, who is inside the final year of his current deal.
