Real Madrid are looking at the possibility of signing Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen in the summer along with defensive midfielder Alex Song. Both these players have become an influential part of the Arsenal set up, but they are reportedly extremely unhappy at the prospect of not being able to win the title with Arsenal in all these years at the club.
Hence, there has been reports that Spanish club Real Madrid will show an interest in the summer and are likely to tempt both these players with a move to sunny Spain. The Belgian centre back Thomas Vermaelen has become one of the main players at Arsenal, who is now capable of being the next Tony Adams.
Arsenal will have to fend off any interest from the Spanish club, but they know that it will be difficult to keep the player if they do not win titles. Further, Real Madrid will be able to offer much better terms when it comes to wages, while they also can offer the nine Champions League trophies on offer as well. Real Madrid are looking to sign a new defender in order to replace Ricardo Carvalho, who is expected to leave in the summer. The Portuguese was signed by José Mourinho in 2010, but has gone out of favour in recent seasons.
The 33-year-old will be allowed to leave the club in the summer after José Mourinho confirmed that he will be sitting and discussing his future following the end of the season. José Mourinho managed to win yet another league title in yet another different country this season. This is the 32nd league title for Real Madrid, but it is not expected to keep them dull in the transfer market. The club has spent £ 100 million in each of the last two transfer windows.
