LONDON -- Manchester United is one of several teams to have made an offer for Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen as the Belgium international prepares to leave Emirates Stadium after five years. Beau Brinkley Jersey . Vermaelen has lost his place in Arsenals team to Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny, and manager Arsene Wenger wont stand in the centre backs way if he decides to move on. United is on the look-out for defenders after seeing Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra leave in the off-season. "Are Man United one of the teams to have made an offer?" Wenger said of the interest in Vermaelen. "I think they could be in the group." Wenger said he would prefer to sell Vermaelen, who was once Arsenals captain, to a foreign club. British media have reported that Barcelona have lodged a bid. "He needs to play now," Wenger said. "He has shown an outstanding attitude but he is in a position where we wouldnt stand in his way if he finds an interesting opportunity." Vermaelen, who joined Arsenal from Ajax in July 2009, has had problems with his form and fitness over the past two seasons. With just over a week to go before the start of the Premier League season, Arsenals trio of World Cup winners -- Mesut Ozil, Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski -- are close to returning to training. None of them, however, will be playing in the first game of the campaign, against Crystal Palace on Aug. 16. "You either bring them back quickly and then you lose them in October," Wenger said, "or you give them the needed rest and build them up again." England winger Theo Walcott, who missed the World Cup because of a knee injury, is expected to return by the start of September. Dane Cruikshank Jersey .

Moving the franchise away from Donald Sterling and to new ownership might require a lengthy fight, but its one Parsons thinks is worthwhile. "This is an issue thats actually bigger than just the Clippers, bigger than just the NBA in my judgment," Parsons said. "The whole world is kind of watching how, frankly, we as a country navigate our way through this crisis. So if I can help, Im happy to try." The NBA chose Parsons, a former Citigroup chairman and former Time Warner chairman and CEO, as interim CEO of the Clippers on Friday. Parsons will oversee the management of the franchise and represent it at owners meetings while the league tries to force Sterling to sell following his lifetime ban for making racist remarks. With Sterling barred from anything to do with the team or league, and team President Andy Roeser on an indefinite leave of absence, the league and Clippers worked together to find someone to lead the organization along with coach Doc Rivers. Parsons, who is black, met with Commissioner Adam Silver on Monday and accepted the position Thursday. He had gotten to know Silver, then the deputy commissioner, when Time Warner owned the Atlanta Hawks, and he supports what Silver is trying to do now in his first crisis since replacing David Stern in February. "Hes a good man and hes trying to do the right thing and hes trying to do it in the right way, and he could use some help," Parsons said during a phone interview. Parsons is currently a senior adviser at Providence Equity Partners and sits on the board of directors for the Commission on Presidential Debates. He has also been on President Barack Obamas economic advisory team. A graduate of the University of Hawaii, where he played basketball, Parsons earned a law degree from Albany Law School in 1971 and became a staff lawyer for New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller. Daren Bates Jersey. He moved to Washington when Rockefeller was appointed vice-president, and also worked closely with President Gerald Ford. Parsons left the legal field in 1988 to become president, then chairman and CEO of Dime Bancorp, Inc. He was Time Warner chairman and CEO from 2002-08, then chairman of Citigroup from 2009-12. Silver said in a statement that Parsons "will bring extraordinary leadership and immediate stability to the Clippers organization." "Dicks credentials as a proven chief executive speak for themselves and I am extremely grateful he accepted this responsibility," Silver added. The owners advisory/finance committee has already held two conference calls since Silver banned Sterling, fined him $2.5 million and said he would urge owners to force Sterling to sell the franchise he has owned since 1981. That would require Sterling to be charged with violating the leagues constitution and bylaws, followed by a three-fourths vote of owners after a hearing. Sterlings estranged wife, Shelly, wants to keep her 50 per cent ownership stake in the team, her lawyer said Thursday, and Silver said so far the ban only applies to Donald Sterling. While that potential fight goes on, the Clippers are trying to stay focused on the playoffs following their most successful regular season ever. They are tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder entering Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal series. Parsons said he wouldnt be involved in an ownership fight and hopes one wont even be necessary, that "cooler heads and rationality" would allow the NBA and the Clippers to work through the turmoil without a legal battle. He doesnt know how long that could take. "I know the NBA would love to get this done before the next season begins, but who knows whats going to happen? Its open ended," Parsons said. "Were here until sort of we can work our way through the point of transition."
