Real Madrid plan bid for Arsenal defender Vermaelen

Real Madrid are tracking Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen. Madrid media sources say Real have Vermaelen on their summer shopping list as they prepare to offload veteran Ricardo Carvalho. Carvalho comes off contract in June and won't be offered new terms.

Vermaelen, after shaking off long-term injury, has been outstanding for Arsenal this season and has come to the attention of Real football chiefs, including Zinedine Zidane.
