Wenger ‘doesn’t want Vermaelen to go to Man Utd’

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he would rather sell captain Thomas Vermaelen to a team outside the Premier League amid interest in the Belgium international from Manchester United, ESPN has reported.

Barcelona are said to be keen on Vermaelen but there is speculation of a £15m bid from United. Wenger confirmed United’s interest but also acknowledged the possibility Vermaelen could move abroad and said that is what he would prefer to happen.


“Manchester United are part of the group [of bidders]. He could leave,” Wenger said. “Ideally we will sell him to a foreign club and it is an option for us. We have offers from abroad as well.”


Vermaelen has been with the Gunners since a 2009 move from Ajax, costing Arsenal £10m. To date the 29-year-old has made 150 appearances for the London club but only seven of them came from the start in the league last season as Wenger opted for the partnership of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny.


He has also scored 15 times for Arsenal but eight of the goals came in his first season, failing to find the back of the net last year.
