Manchester United are still looking at the possibility of re-signing Nemanja Vidic according to the Daily Star.
The Serbian is having a torrid time in Italy and has been dropped by new boss Roberto Mancini in recent weeks - which has prompted suggestions he could be on the move.
It was claimed that a return to Manchester United was possible but the rumours died out, until now. The Daily Star say that Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is examining the possibility of taking the veteran centre-half back to Old Trafford in the January window.
Indeed according to the Star the former Manchester United man has been dumped onto the transfer list by Mancini, who wants him gone in the new year. It is believed that the 33-year-old earns around £50,000-per-week at the San Siro and that Inter won't be looking for anything other than a nominal fee, so a deal could well be possible.
Manchester United have seen their back line decimated by injury this season, although they appear to be over the worst of it going into the second half of the campaign.

Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw are still struggling with knocks but could be back in action soon, but given the Red Devils' trouble at the back this season Van Gaal could certainly do with the extra experience that Vidic can offer.
There is also interest in Vidic from Juventus and Besiktas but if Manchester United do come calling then there is only one place he would go.
