Report: Barcelona's Thomas Vermaelen wants Premier League return

A report claims that Belgian centre-back Thomas Vermaelen wants to leave Barcelona this summer and return to the Premier League.

Barcelona centre-back Thomas Vermaelen is reportedly keen on a return to the Premier League at the end of the season.

The 30-year-old joined Barcelona from Arsenal in 2014, but his first season in Spain, which saw him feature just once, was plagued by injury.

The Belgian international has made 16 appearances this season, but is still behind Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano in the pecking order in central defence.

Chelsea have recently been linked with a move for the former Arsenal defender, and according to Fichajes.net, Vermaelen is keen on a return to England.

Manchester United are also believed to have expressed a strong interest in signing the Belgian before he moved to Camp Nou.
