Fresh rumours have surfaced linking Manchester United’s Serbian centre back Nemanja Vidic with a move to Real Madrid. With Pepe being ruled out for the long term with a torn cruciate ligament Real will look to bolster their defence by raiding Old Trafford yet again.
The Times are mentioning a fee of £30 million for the defender but Sir Alex will be reluctant to break up the Ferdinand/Vidic partnership. However, Vidic’s contract runs out in 2012 so if he doesn’t appear willing to sign an extension, rather than lose him for free United will cash in.
This won’t be Madrid’s first time shopping at Old Trafford having taken Beckham, Heinze, Van Nistelrooy and most recently Ronaldo away from United.
