Manchester United have agreed a deal with Inter Milan to re-sign centre-back Nemanja Vidic despite him leaving the club just several months ago, reports the Metro.

The Serbian ended his illustrious career in England after coming to a decision that he wouldn't be extending his contract at Old Trafford, and therefore left the club on a free in the summer once his deal expired.

Due to the Bosman Ruling, Vidic was free to talk to overseas clubs in January, and after numerous talks, he agreed a deal in principle to join Inter Milan, and in June, with his deal over in Manchester, he completed a move to Italy.

Old Trafford Return

However, Vidic has struggled to adapt in Serie A and has struggled for form, with several below-par performances, and according to reports this morning, a deal has already been agreed which will see the 33-year-old return to Old Trafford.

Reports stated in the English media are claiming that a deal has already been agreed and Vidic will rejoin Manchester United in January, with it likely to be a short-term deal taking him through to the summer.

Injury Crisis

United are in desperate need of defensive reinforcements with injuries mounting, and Vidic is seen as the perfect option due to his experience, reputation at the club and his price-tag.

The Red Devils have an ever-growing injury list and have been restricted to playing youths at the heart of the defence, with Tyler Blackett and Paddy McNair first team regulars this campaign.

Other Options

The veteran is seen as a cheap option for Louis Van Gaal, who is also considering Mats Hummels, Winston Reid and Tyrone Mings, and it's reported that the Dutchman carried out the deal in person.

Van Gaal is believed to have spoken to officials from the San Siro and personally thrashed out a deal with the Italian side, making it an acceptable offer for both parties.

If reports are to be believed, Vidic will return in the New Year once the transfer window re-opens.
