Inter Milan predisent Erick Thohir has today declared that there is no official agreement in place to sign Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic at this stage, telling Corriere dello Sport that he won't comment further on the proposed move until he has concrete news to share.
Vidic is widely expected to join Inter when his United contract expires at the end of the season, after confirming last month that he will end eight stellar years at Old Trafford when the current campaign concludes.
Thohir has previously described the proposed deal to make Vidic an Inter player as 90% done, but this morning attempted to revise that stance by insisting that the United captain has not put pen to paper on a Nerazzurri contract.
The Inter chief is quoted by Football Italia as stating: “The deal [for Vidic] has not yet been announced and I will not go over it.
"I will talk about new players only when contracts are signed."
Under Thohir's stewardship Inter look well placed to splash the cash this summer, in an attempt to claw back lost ground on Serie A's dominant force Juve.
Brazilian international Hernanes arrived last month and experienced players such as United duo Vidic and Patrice Evra look well placed to join him in Serie A, with Inter desperate to regain their Champions League status swiftly.
