Man United set to bolster defence with £40m duo Vermaelen and Benatia [Express]
Manchester United are set to bolster their defence by making a £40 million double swoop for Thomas Vermaelen and Mehdi Benatia, according to the Express.
It is known that United are in advanced talks with Arsenal about recruiting Vermaelen but the additional signing of Roma defender Benatia would be a major coup.
Benatia has garnered the attention of both Chelsea and Manchester City but Louis van Gaal is said to be confident of bring the ball-playing defender to Old Trafford, costing around £30m.
The fee for Vermaelen would be around £10m; although it’s understood that the Belgian would like a move to United, Wenger would rather sell abroad and may be willing to accept a lower price from Barcelona.
