Manchester United will have to move quickly if they are to secure the services of Serbia and Montenegro defender Nemanja Vidic next month.

Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to be interested in luring the 24-year-old to Old Trafford in a bid to boost his shaky rearguard. Vidic has already made it clear he intends to quit his current club Spartak Moscow when the transfer window opens next month.

However, PA Sport understands that while Vidic would welcome the chance to talk with Ferguson, his current preferred choice is Serie A outfit Fiorentina.
