Inter confirm interest in 'great opportunity' Vidic

Nemanja Vidic

The Serie A giants have admitted that the Manchester United skipper is in their sights.

Manchester United have been rocked by the news that Nemanja Vidic has decided to leave the club at the end of the season.

The Serbian defender’s departure will play its part in a rebuilding process at Old Trafford, with David Moyes remodeling the Manchester side.

Vidic has admitted that he will not move to another side in England, with plenty of sides on the continent believed to be monitoring the centre-half’s situation.

Inter have been one of the sides linked with Vidic consistently, and the Serie A club’s director Piero Ausilio has confirmed that the Nerazzurri are interested in signing the United man ahead of next season.

"Vidic is an important player whose contract expires in June. Like other European clubs, we will try to get something from this great opportunity," he told Tuttosport.

"He is one of the players we are tracking. He has an interesting profile for Inter, as he has charisma and international experience.

"We will probably lose some players in his role because their contracts are up, so he is someone we are trying to pay attention to.

"However, we're a long way from saying we've already done something with regards to Vidic and I don't feel ready to confirm anything."

Moyes will be lining up potential replacements for Vidic, who has proven himself to be one of English football’s top defenders over his eight seasons in the Premier League.
