Here in the Football Transfer Tavern there are shocked faces as Metro report an Italian giant is not quite finished with their raid on Manchester – this time however they are after a Manchester United player.
AC Milan are believed to be considering a move for centre back Nemanja Vidic to reinforce their back line and bring that much needed defensive solidity and experience back to the Rossoneri side. Not only this but the club have suffered from the exit of Thiago Silva in the summer who of course left with Zlatan Ibrahimovic to moneybags Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain.
Vidic of course has been vital to United down the years and despite being injury prone for the last couple of seasons, his talent and quality has never been in doubt. AC Milan feel that he would be a perfect partner for Philippe Mexes who has been struggling this season without the cool head and physical presence of Silva next to him.
The Serie A side would have a tough job on their hands to prize Vidic away from the club he has spent so long at however and given that United are set to lift a 20th Premier League trophy whilst AC are struggling to secure a Champions League spot, one would wonder why they would bother at all.
Do you think Vidic would entertain a move to Milan? Rate this rumour below.
