Defender’s Agent Talks About Manchester United Move After Recent Rumours


Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has been linked with a possible return to Old Trafford in recent week, however, his agent went on to quash the reports by saying that he will honour his contract with Inter Milan.

Silvano Martina, Vidic’s agent, said, “Yes, he’s already training with the Red Devils!

“It’s all just stories. Vidic has a three-year deal with Inter and he’s not moving from Milan. There’s almost no point in commenting the nonsense being spread and I don’t even see for what reason the lad would be accosted to other teams.

“There’s been little respect for the player I represent, not by Inter, but by the press. As soon as the Nerazzurri got a couple of games wrong, the press didn’t think twice before attacking Vidic, pointing fingers at him as the only one worthy of blame.

“I’ll say this again – he’s not moving from Inter.”

Vidic made the switch from Manchester United to Inter this summer on a free transfer and hasn’t been at his best. His side languish in the 12th spot having picked up just 17 points from their 14 games in the league. The Serbian is yet to forge a good partnership with usual first choice Andrea Ranocchia and after disappointing under recently sacked manager Walter Mazzari, he has subsequently lost his place to center back Juan Jesus.

It is yet to be seen whether or not newly appointed manager Roberto Mancini will want Vidic at the club as a squad overhaul is very likely to come in January or next summer as the Nerrazzuri have struggled in the last few years due to an ageing squad. Since the departure of Jose Mourinho, they have managed to win just one trophy that came under Rafael Benitez.

United have returned to form off late but are yet to put a convincing defensive performance. As a result, rumours emerged that they could go after Vidic to bring back the stability that was present during the Sir Alex Ferguson days.
