Former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic's contract at the San Siro with Inter Milan has been terminated by mutual consent, according to the Daily Mail.

The Serbian defender has struggled with injuries since joining the Nerazzurri in 2014, which appears to have impacted his relationship with manager Roberto Mancini and resulted in the termination of his contract with immediate effect.

The centre-back, who had just five months remaining of his deal, made 28 appearances in all competitions for the San Siro side last season but failed to make a single appearance this campaign.

It's believed the high wages Vidic commanded also played a part in his departure, with Inter keen to use such funds elsewhere, such as on new transfers.

Despite the setback, it appears the 34-year-old is far from considering retirement with offers from Major League Soccer being considered.

The MLS' new campaign begins in March and could provide Vidic the platform he needs to pursue regular football.

Prior to joining Inter, the defender spent eight-and-a-half years with Manchester United during a trophy-laden tenure which saw Vidic win the Premier League five times and the Champions League in 2008, becoming one of Europe's best defenders in the process.

He retired from international football in 2011 after earning 56 caps for Serbia, with whom he was criticised for not replicating the form and performances shown in a United shirt.
