Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic is ‘just the man’ to revive the fortunes of Inter, according to the Serie A club’s Colombian midfielder Fredy Guarin, after it was announced earlier this week that the Serbian has agreed to move to the San Siro on a free transfer.

The future of Vidic with Manchester United had been the subject of speculation for some time, before it was revealed last month that the 32-year-old would be leaving the club following the expiration of his contract at the end of the season.

Inter had emerged as the most likely destination for Vidic, and the confirmation came on Wednesday that it was the Italian giants had won the race to sign him. David Moyes revealed he had known since January that Vidic would leave for Inter, and he leaves Manchester United with the best wishes of his manager.

The arrival of Vidic continues a transition taking place in Milan, and a number of other prominent figures are expected to follow the centre-back before the close of the summer transfer window. And, says Guarin, Inter had made the ideal first acquisition.

"He's an important signal for the start of the new president's project: a champion with years of experience as captain of Manchester United," he told Tuttosport.

"He's a player who will do well on and off the field. His presence will also be essential for all the youngsters who have come this year and will come in future.

"Vidic was just the man this Inter needed."

Vidic will leave Manchester United having made over 450 appearances for he club, and leading the Red Devils to numerous honours. He is a veteran of five Premier League title wins, three Champions League finals - one of which he won - and three League Cups.

He was made captain by Sir Alex Ferguson on a permanent basis at the start of the 2010-11 season, and will retain the armband until his departure.
