first_imgArsenal hero Nigel Winterburn has told talkSPORT Thomas Vermaelen is likely to join Manchester United this summer.The Belgian defender, who was out of favour at the Emirates last season, has been on Louis van Gaal’s radar all summer as he looks to bolster his backline.The loss of Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra has left the Red Devils looking light in defence and Vermaelen would fit the bill as a replacement.A deal worth £10million has been mooted in recent weeks, despite the rivalry between the two clubs, and Winterburn reckons the transfer will in the end be completed.“We like selling our players to Manchester United don’t we,” he told The Sports Bar.“If Manchester United make the best offer and, that’s where Thomas Vermaelen wants to go, then I believe he will end up there.“I don’t think Arsene Wenger wants to, but he has a lot of respect for the player who has been there for a little while.“He would love to sell him abroad if he did go but it wouldn’t surprise me if he ends up at Man United.“Selling to his rivals doesn’t seem to bother Wenger that much. He wants to keep that player happy because he’s served the football club and hasn’t caused him any problems.But Winterburn feels losing Vermaelen wouldn’t be much of a blow considering his drop in form over the last couple of seasons.“Thomas has lost his way at Arsenal,” he added. “He needs to move to get back to the level he was at when he first came to the football club.”last_img read more
