Manchester United star wanted by AC Milan

Published Add your comment

AC Milan are interested in signing Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic, according to The Sun.

The 32-year-old Serbian international is out of contract at the end of the season and the aforementioned reports suggests that the Rossoneri are interested in bringing him to Serie A when his deal does expire.

If AC Milan are indeed keen on a move for the Manchester United skipper, it appears they face significant competition from their fierce local rivals, with speculation last night suggesting that Inter were ready to offer Vidic a two-year contract amid interest from Juventus and Ligue 1 outfit Monaco.

Vidic - who earns £100k-per-week at present - has been at Manchester United since 2006 and his solid defending, leadership qualities and unique brand of uncompromising physicality made him an instant fan's favourite at Old Trafford.

Alongside Rio Ferdinand, Vidic formed a formidable centre-back partnership that provided a solid foundation for the further success enjoyed by Sir Alex Ferguson during the latter stages of his Manchester United career.

Despite his good form over a number of years for the Premier League champions, Vidic - along with most of the Manchester United squad, it has to be said - has not quite been at his best this season during a difficult period of struggle under the tutelage of David Moyes.

If the club were indeed to let the powerful Serb depart on a free transfer at the end of the 2013/14 campaign, it would surely be wise to presume that Moyes has other targets in mind to strengthen that area of his ailing squad.

A move to AC Milan is unlikely to give Vidic another chance to add to his bulging trophy cabinet, though,  with Clarence Seedorf's side also enduring an obvious period of decline that sees them currently languish 10th in the Serie A standings.
