The Belgian centre-back will move to the Italian league
Thomas Vermaelen will play for AS Rome next season. The Belgian centre-back travelled to the Italian capital this morning with Barcelona's approval to complete his medical with the new club.
Vermaelen wanted to play and he couldn't do it at Barcelona. This summer with the signing of Umitit he would have got even a more difficult time, so he decided to move. The transfer will be official in the next hours and he will leave on loan one season. Roma will have to buy the player at the end of the loan.
