Manchester United star furious over contract snub

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has been left angered by his contract snub at Old Trafford, according to The Sun.

The publication suggests that the Serbian international's current contract expires at the end of the 2013/14 campaign but he is yet to be offered a new one - leaving Vidic fuming with the situation.

32-year-old Vidic - who is the current Manchester United captain - joined the club from Russian outfit Spartak Moscow back in 2006 and has enjoyed a successful eight-year stint at Old Trafford with one Champions League title and five Premier League crowns to his name.

As well as establishing himself as arguably the most dominant and physical defensive presence in the English top-flight, the former Red Star Belgrade favourite also forged one of the most successful centre-back partnerships in recent memory alongside Manchester United stalwart Rio Ferdinand.

Despite his lofty reputation at the club, however, doubt has surrounded Vidic's future this season with his contract due to end so soon.

Inter Milan, who currently lie sixth in Serie A, have reportedly offered the defender a chance to move to the San Siro on a two-year deal during the summer.

Manchester United, whose dismal 2-1 defeat to Mark Hughes' Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium last Saturday was their first league defeat to the Potters in almost 30 years, have struggled defensively since David Moyes entered the managerial dugout during the summer and this is surely an area they will look to strengthen when the transfer window opens once again.

Whist, at 32, Vidic is perhaps not the monstrous presence he once was during his early years  at the club, it seems unlikely that Manchester United would be willing to see him depart without being sure of securing adequate replacements.
