What is the latest news on Arthur Vermeeren’s transfer to Manchester United?
According to a Spanish outlet SportBarcelona are keen to sign the Royal Antwerp midfielder ahead of next season as they seek a future heir to replace the departing Sergio Busquets. However, Man United have “made contact” with their representatives and could potentially make the move themselves.
The young one would only cost approx €8 million (£7 million) according to the report, which could prove to be an excellent investment for the future, especially as Ten Hag is “in love” with his style of play.
Would Vermeeren be the perfect heir to Casemiro at Manchester United?
Casemiro arrived in Manchester on £60 million last summer when Ten Hag looked to add some stability to United’s midfield, and while the fee was certainly staggering for a 30-year-old player, he was an excellent signing.
As United secured promotion to the Champions League with a 4-1 win over Chelsea, Casemiro became an integral part of the Ten Haga team. by 27 Premier League appearances, the midfielder, who is now 31, ranks second in United’s squad with an average Sofascore match rating of 7.22/10while emphasizing its importance to the Dutchman by classification the first for tackles per game (3.3), the second for steals per game (1.3), and the third for chances created (6).
However, he won’t live forever and Vermeeren could be the perfect heir to the former Real Madrid star in the years to come.
The 5ft 9in sensation, like Casemiro, also ranks in the top 3 of his roster for performances this season, averaging a Sofascore of 7.05/10 simultaneously classification very high in steals per game (1.3), tackles per game (2.7) and big chances created (three), with these stats quite similar to those of Casemiro, albeit at a different level of football.
Football talent hunter Jacek Kulig described the teenage star as “one of the most exciting prospects in Belgiumin February due to his impressive performances in the Pro League and it certainly looks like his potential is limitless – especially if United and Barcelona have their eye on him.
With 83% With a passing rate and an average of 52.2 touches per game in the league, Vermeeren already feels extremely comfortable on the ball while also demonstrating Belgium’s impressive passing ability.
If Ten Hag manages to win over the 18-year-old, he could become the perfect heir to Casemiro, and studying alongside the Brazilian will certainly improve his skills.
