Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic would 'like to stay' with the Premier League champions were the club to offer him a new contract, according to friend and former international colleague Mateja Kezman.

The veteran centre-back will see his current deal expire at the end of the season and his future in Manchester would seem to be in serious doubt after his agent appeared to rule out a renewal.

Galatasaray have been linked with Vidic, although representative Silvano Martina claims a deal has not been agreed, while Monaco have often been credited with interest in the former Serbia international.

The 32-year-old would, however, be willing to commit his future to Manchester United were he offered the opportunity to extend his stay at Old Trafford for another season.

"Nemanja Vidic is top and player and big friend of mine," Kezman told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT.

"I spoke to him a few months ago and he said then that he was waiting to see what will happen with his contract.

"I would give him a new contract. It’s true he’s not the player he was a few years ago, he’s a bit injury-prone, but he’s still a leader. Man United need him in the dressing room, around the young players.

"He’s not unhappy. He’s been there for years and would like to stay for another season. He loves the club, the city, the fans, everybody.

"I’m sure he will do his best to stay at United if they offer him a contract."

Vidic has made 288 appearances in eight-and-a-half years with Manchester United, winning five league titles and reaching the final of the Champions League on three occasions.
