Serbian centre back Vidic, 32, left Old Trafford this summer upon the expiration of his contract having enjoyed a superb eight-and-a-half year spell with the Red Devils since his January 2006 switch from Russian side Spartak Moscow. The ex-skipper decided to move to Serie A with Inter Milan, but is trying to tempt one of this former team mates to the San Siro too.
Striker Javier Hernandez started just six Premier League games last season as former boss David Moyes chose to use Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck in attack, and things don't look any more promising under new manager Louis van Gaal.
The Dutchman is reportedly willing to let Hernandez leave in search of first team football, with Atletico Madrid allegedly interested in bringing the Mexican to La Liga. However, Vidic has made his pitch in trying to bring 'Chicharito' with him to Italy, but left it up to manager Walter Mazzarri over whether to sign him or not.
"These things are up to clubs," Vidic said. "Obviously, Chicharito will be a good signing for every club and we'd be glad to have him. Now we have to focus on this group to get the Europa League qualification. It's not the Champions League but it's a very nice competition with a lot of good European teams."
Mazzarri's side have been on the hunt for a new centre forward ever since they found out that Diego Milito would be returning to Argentina with Racing Club de Avellaneda, and a whole host of players have been linked with the club - most recently, Southampton's Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.
However, it's hard to really argue with Hernandez's incredible goalscoring record in England. 59 goals in 152 appearances - many of which were games coming off the substitutes bench - is a superb return, and at still only 26, he would certainly offer something to the Inter attack with his predatory instincts.
Whether Vidic gets his way or not remains to be seen - but it does appear that Hernandez's time at Old Trafford is coming to a close.
