Nemanja Vidic placed on transfer list by Inter Milan

Manchester United hero Nemanja Vidic has been placed on the transfer list by his current employers, Inter Milan.

The Express cite Italian sources as claiming that Inter boss Roberto Mancini - the man formerly in charge of Manchester City - has deemed the central defender surplus to requirements at the San Siro and will allow him to leave in January.

It was recently reported that United were mulling over the idea of bringing their former captain back to Old Trafford, but these rumours were swiftly quashed by his agent.

Inter make their decision

However, his agent also said at the same time that his client is “not moving from Milan” - which indicates that Inter’s decision to offload Vidic has only been made over the past week or so.

If Manchester United have no interest in re-signing the 33-year-old, who was convinced to join Inter by Mancini’s predecessor Walter Mazzarri earlier this year, then one potential destination could be Besiktas.

Besiktas and Juventus interested

The Turkish giants have become the latest team to have made a formal enquiry for the experienced centre-back, joining the likes of Juventus in the race for his signature.

Vidic joined Inter, after eight successful years at Manchester United, hoping to embark on an exciting new challenge in the final years of his professional carer.

Vidic's wages

However, Vidic has failed to impress since arriving in Serie A and currently finds himself behind Juan Jesus and Andrea Ranocchia in the pecking order at the San Siro.

Mancini will also be acutely aware that offloading Vidic in the New Year will free up a cool £50,000 a week in wages, which could be used on attracting new players to the Nerazzurri when the transfer window re-opens next week.
