Inter Milan are close to wrapping up a deal for Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic - and will target moves for Bacary Sagna and Samuel Eto'o once the transfer is sealed.

Vidic revealed earlier this month that will be ending his association with Manchester United at the end of the season.

Inter Milan president Erick Thohir has been quoted as saying that the deal to take Vidic from Old Trafford is '90% done' - and now the Mirror report that move is virtually complete, with officials from the Italian club flying into Manchester to finalise talks.

The Manchester United defender will be offered a two year contract with the option of a third to sign on the dotted line.

The paper adds that when it is complete, Inter will turn their attention to two other veterans of the Premier League - Arsenal ace Bacary Sagna and Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o.

Sagna is out of contract at Arsenal at the end of the season and is seemingly no closer to agreeing a new deal to keep him in north London.

The 31-year-old has already turned down two offers from Arsenal and is holding out for a three-year contract which is not yet forthcoming.

Eto'o meanwhile only joined Chelsea at the start of the current campaign but is yet to recapture his best form. 

The Cameroonian was also the target for some derogatory comments made by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho in a recent interview, which could cast doubt over his future.

The 32-year-old is currently on a one-year contract at Stamford Bridge, but any hopes he may of had of staying in west London appear over. Mourinho has previously hinted that he will be looking to sign a big-name striker in the summer.

Manchester United defender Patrice Evra, who is also out of contract in the summer and is, according to the Mirror, being considered as an option by Inter Milan.
