Metro have Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern on the edge of their seats, as they claim that Nemanja Vidic’s summer move is almost a done deal.
As we are reminded by our landlord, the defender has made it very clear that he does not see his long term future at Old Trafford, and now it seems that he will be making the move to Serie A.
We had thought that former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez would be the one to land the defender, but it seems that Inter Milan have beaten them to the player.
Inter Milan chief Erick Thohir spoke about the chances of the move coming off and claimed that it was nearly signed, sealed and delivered. He noted: ‘I can’t say anything other than the deal for Vidic is 90% done.’
Our regulars who wear the red of United here in the tavern are looking rather disappointed at this news, and as they note over a beer and a game of pool, we may have known the Serbian International was going to leave, but seeing it happen is another thing all together.
We think that David Moyes could well struggle to get anyone as good as Vidic in the summer. Do you agree? let us know your thoughts below.
