Manchester United legend Nemanja Vidic has made his return to Old Trafford after leaving for Inter Milan in 2014.

Having retired from professional football earlier this year, the Serbian has been designated the role of club ambassador, according to the Independent.

Vidic's return at the Theatre of Dreams was confirmed on United's official Instagram account (see below), the 34-year-old playing a part in announcing their pre-season tour of China this summer.

The Red Devils have a huge fan following in the Far East with an estimated 107 million followers and it's evident their visit would be to exploit the country's commercial market and further globalise their brand.

Vidic's return was welcomed with open arms by United fans, their former captain spending nine seasons in Manchester and helping the club to vast success alongside Rio Ferdinand in central defence.

Louis van Gaal’s men will travel to China and face Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai on June 22 before a clash with arch-rivals Manchester City three days later in the Chinese capital.

The Manchester clubs will be joined by Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Leicester City in the International Champions Cup tournament.

The Citizens, meanwhile, had previously announced their pre-season tour plans in China having sold a 13% share of City Football Group's €3 billion empire to China Media Capital last December, worth €400 million (£265million), as per the Guardian.
