Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic could soon have a big decision to make on his future.
According to reports from Italian sport newspaper Tuttosport cited by Goal.com, Serie A outfit Inter Milan are preparing to offer the Serbian international a three-year contract to move to Italy this summer.
Vidic's current contract expires at the end of the 2013/14 campaign and as of yet the imposing centre-back has not put-pen-to-paper on a new deal to remain at Old Trafford.
Such a situation will surely see interest mount in the Manchester United captain, particularly given his wealth of experience at the elite level.
Vidic joined Manchester United from Russian Premier League side Spartak Moscow in January 2006 and quickly established himself as one of the Premier League's most dominant and intimidating defenders.
Along with Rio Ferdinand, he also went on to form one of the most formidable partnerships in league history.
The former Red Star Belgrade man has won a plethora of trophies during his eight-year stint at Old Trafford, helping Manchester United to lift the Champions League as well as collecting five Premier league titles, three League Cup winners medals and five Community Shield wins.
The 32-year-old, although seemingly still integral to Manchester United's chances of success under David Moyes, has slowed down somewhat this season though, occasionally attracting criticism as the Red Devils have struggled since the Scot succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson during the summer.
He missed the club's dismal 2-1 defeat to Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday - a game in which Moyes was forced to use Michael Carrick as makeshift centre-back after injuries sustained by Jonny Evans and Phil Jones - having been sent off during the defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last month.
Given his vital role as the dressing room leader, you must think that Manchester United will be keen to get him tied down to a new deal. Inter could prove an attractive proposition, however.
