Nemanja Vidic may have always been a loyal club servant to Manchester United but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to coerce players into following him through the exit door at Old Trafford, according to reports.
The ex-United skipper, who has agreed a deal to move to Inter Milan this summer has been actively attempting to persuade team-mate Javier Hernandez to join him in making the San Siro switch, despite the fact that the Mexican has a host of offers from other clubs.
But while Louis van Gaal might not be too concerned with a perennial substitute departing, he will have been rocked by the news that Toni Kroos has pleaded with Bayern Munich chiefs to let him join Real Madrid. The German international stated last month that he would not be joining United this summer, but it’s thought that he is keen on instead moving to the Bernabeu as part of Florentino Perez’s annual squad revamp.
Van Gaal's situation grows slightly rosier with rumours that Pep Guardiola has made Bastian Schweinsteiger available to buy, but with Francesc Fabregas having all but signed on the dotted line for Chelsea to list of potential midfield purchases is growing precariously thin.
