The Emirates captain could be new boss Louis van Gaal‘s first major signing at the club.
But it hasn’t gone down well with the Red Devils support.
Here are 10 Twitter reactions which show some United fans don’t want Vermaelen at the club:
My general feeling on Thomas Vermaelen is that he has an allergy to defending. Time will tell, I guess.

There are good responses to the potential move – but there seems to be an overwhelming majority who don’t want the Belgian.
