It’s July 1st, the transfer window is now ‘officially’ open and with that in mind here are 10 deals that will be completed this week.
Thomas Vermaelen (Arsenal to Man United)
The ideal cost effective option to help fill the void left by departing defenders Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.
The former Ajax man has become a bit-part player at the Emirates Stadium with Arsene Wenger opting to use Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny as his first choice central defensive pairing and preferring Kieran Gibb at left-back.
Man United have reportedly agreed personal terms with Vermaelen and have seen an opening bid turned down by the north London club, who want £12m for the experienced defender.
