Nemanja Vidic has pledged his allegiance to Manchester United for life, after speculation that he might be leaving got through to the star captain.
"I hope to spend the rest of my career here at United,” the Manchester United defender told the Sunday Mirror.
"I heard the speculation about me maybe leaving last year, but I know where I want to be and I have shown my commitment to the club.
"I have given the best years of my career to this club and the talk about me leaving here was never correct.”
Vidic says he wants to stay at Manchester United because the club gets the best out of him.
"I always give my best,” he said.
“Of course, sometimes you have good and bad days, but I think I always try to give 100 per cent - and especially now I have that armband and the responsibility that goes with it.
"I'm definitely here for the rest of my career now.”
While reports speculated that Vidic was heading to Real Madrid, Barcelona or AC Milan, the Manchester United captain points out that he never said himself that he was leaving.
"It never came from my mouth that I would be leaving United. I love it here and I think I show that on the pitch."
Vidic is an integral member of the Manchester United squad, and Sir Alex Ferguson would have to be offered top dollar to ever let the stalwart go. And even then, Vidic could be too valuable to Untied for any price.
