FC Barcelona kicked off their Champions League campaign on Tuesday with a resounding 5-0 victory over Royal Antwerp, but it was a player from the Belgian side who caught the eye of the Catalan giants.
Arthur Vermeeren, recently linked with Manchester United, has reportedly drawn interest from Atletico Madrid and FC Barcelona after his impressive performance against the Spanish giants. The 18-year-old defensive midfielder is currently under contract with Antwerp until June 2026.
Vermeeren’s potential transfer to FC Barcelona would add depth to the midfield, which has been a concern for the club in recent seasons. The young Belgian’s technical ability and defensive prowess make him an attractive prospect for the Catalan side.
If Vermeeren does make the move to FC Barcelona, it would be a significant step in his career and a testament to his talent. The club’s track record of developing young players would provide him with an excellent opportunity to reach his potential and compete at the highest level.
Overall, Vermeeren’s performance in the Champions League debut has put him on the radar of top European clubs, and it will be interesting to see where his career takes him in the coming years.
