Man Utd plan shock swoop for Arsenal captain Vermaelen
Manchester United are lining up a shock swoop for Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen. Having raided the Gunners 12 months ago for Vermaelen's predecessor Robin van Persie, United are now eyeing the Belgian.
Barcelona are also keeping tabs on the situation.
Vermaelen is understood to be keen to stay and fight for his place at Arsenal, even though he is no longer a guaranteed starter.
