Manchester United captain's agent rules out new contract

Published Add your comment

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic does not expect to be at Old Trafford next season and is aware of growing interest in his services from a whole host of European clubs including Napoli, according to the player's agent.

Vidic is in the final year of his current deal at United and has so far not been offered fresh terms, fuelling exit rumours as the Red Devils continue to endure a frustrating campaign at Old Trafford.

The 32-year-old has been restricted to 13 Premier League appearances so far this term, leading to his representative Silvano Martina giving an interview to Italian radio that outlined the centre-back's current stance on extending his stay at United beyond this summer.

Martia told Radio Crc: "Vidic, given his contract situation, has several teams looking at him. Napoli? At the moment there has been no contact.

"Thanks to the management of [Napoli President] De Laurentiis and [Napoli sporting director] Bigon, they are one of the best clubs in Europe.

"Vidic is a very good player and will have no trouble finding a new club. For the time being we are remaining calm. However, at the moment, I would rule out an extension with Manchester United."

Napoli's interest has been previously reported, with Azzurri coach Rafael Benitez actively looking to strengthen his defence with experience and quality during the close season.

Vidic is now free to talk terms with any club he chooses with a view to finding a new club next season, with United still trying to decide what to do with a host of players out of contract including Patrice Evra and Fabio.
