Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic may be willing to listen to an offer from Juventus, it has been claimed, with the Italian champions planning a move for the defender in the January transfer window.

According to The Sun, Juventus are set to offer £8 million for Vidic during the winter transfer period, and sources close to the Serbian suggest he could listen to any hypothetical proposal from the Serie A giants.

It is reported that the Vidic camp are unsure whether the 31-year-old has the total confidence of Manchester United manager David Moyes, which could encourage Juventus to formalise their interest in the player come the New Year.

Vidic is out of contract at the end of the season, which would allow him to negotiate with other clubs from January, but Moyes has hinted he will be offered an opportunity to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

The centre-back has struggled terribly with injury in recent seasons, but has returned to the heart of the Manchester United defence this term - starting in all but one of the club's Premier League outings so far.

Vidic's recent form, however, has come under scrutiny, with notable high-profile errors made against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League and during last week's victory against Sunderland.

The former Serbia international joined Manchester United in 2006 and has made 271 appearances for the club.
