Nemanja Vidic could join Juventus on loan

Published Add your comment

Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic could be about to call time on his career at Inter Milan already, by joining Juventus on loan.

The Serbian defender left Old Trafford over the summer, but has had a torrid time with his new club. Vidic has played nine Serie A games for the Italian giants but has been dropped by new boss Roberto Mancini recently.


That has prompted speculation that he could be on his way back to Manchester United, with his former club looking short of options at the back thanks to a spate of injuries. That would be a surprise move from boss Louis van Gaal who is looking to rebuild his squad and make them title challengers once more.

It seems more likely that he could make a loan switch to Juventus, which is being suggested in the Italian press this morning. La Stampa are reporting that the Old Lady will make an approach in the January transfer window, and that Inter are willing to cut their losses already.


However Juventus have a host of defensive options they are looking at ahead of the winter window, including Vlad Chiriches from Tottenham.

Manchester United meanwhile will most likely bide their time and instead add options at the back in the summer having failed to do so during the last window.


Top target Mats Hummels won't leave Borussia Dortmund mid-way through the season but could be tempted later on in the year, especially if his side continue to struggle.

Ron Vlaar has been suggested as a possible arrival at Old Trafford in January but that seems unlikely. A return for Vidic would also seem to fall into the same category.
