Inter already sick of Vidic: Is Manchester United return on cards?

Nemanja Vidic

There are reports in Italy that Serie A side Inter are considering getting rid of Nemanja Vidic with two hypotheses being suggested.

Nemanja Vidic was a star at Manchester United, but he has been disastrous since moving to Inter and there are rumours he could head back to Old Trafford.

The Serbian international was a major coup for Inter when they swooped to sign him as a free agent in the summer and the move was hailed as genius by many.

But ever since his opening day sending off, Vidic has made a series of uncharacteristic errors and struggled to adapt to the pace of Serie A and Inter's three-man defence.

Inter are under immense pressure after making a poor start to the season and boss Walter Mazzarri could be axed any day now, but Vidic could also be on his way.

According to the latest reports from Italy, Inter are weighing up whether they may be willing to sell Vidic on either in January or in next summer, which seems more likely.

There are two suggested destinations should Vidic leave - one being Turkish outfit Galatasaray, the other his former side Manchester United.

The Turkish press believe that struggling Galatasaray boss Cesare Prandelli is waiting with a one-and-a-half year contract that he would like Vidic to sign in January.

While a return to Old Trafford would appear improbable, United have hardly looked perfect in defence and Vidic may regret his decision to move on.

Inter could be tempted by the opportunity to make a quick profit and turn a poor transfer move into a shrewd one and Vidic may be relieved to give up on Serie A.
