Serie A champions Juventus could be set to rival AC Milan for the services of Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic, according to talkSPORT.

31-year-old Vidic, who joined the Red Devils from Russian top-flight outfit Spartak Moscow in January 2006, has been a pivotal figure for the club in the heart of defence over recent seasons and, along with former England stalwart Rio Ferdinand, helped to form one of the Premier League's most formidable centre-back pairings.

However, despite his continued importance for the top-flight champions, Serbian international Vidic could be set to depart Old Trafford in the not-too-distant future with no extension yet agreed to his current deal which is due to expire next summer.

Despite new United manager David Moyes insisting that his skipper is the very best defender that he has ever worked with, speculation has increased in recent weeks that a number of Europe's other heavyweights are monitoring Vidic's contract situation with keen interest.

After reporting last week that Massimiliano Allegri's Milan were closely monitoring the defender's situation, talkSPORT now believe that Antonio Conte's Juventus could be set to tempt the former Red Star Belgrade star to Serie A with the offer of a bumper four-year deal possibly worth up to £3.3 million per season.

Manchester United and Vidic, who were indebted to Belgian-born sensation Adnan Januzaj for a second-half brace that secured a narrow 2-1 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday evening, return to top-flight action following the international break against Mauricio Pochettino's in-form Southampton on October 19.
