Nemanja Vidic: Internazionale confirm 'world class' Manchester United defender will join them next season

Serbian defender will head for Italy when his contract at Old Trafford expires

Internazionale have confirmed that they have signed Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic for next season. 

The Serbian defender will move to Serie A in the summer when his contact at Old Trafford expires, the 32-year-old revealed last month that he would be leaving United when his deal runs out.

Vidic has been United captain since the start of the 2010/11 campaign, and has enjoyed a trophy-laden eight years at the club he joined from Spartak Moscow in January 2006, winning five Premier League titles, three FA Cups, one Champions League and one Club World Cup.

Inter's President, Erick Thohir, said of the deal: "Vidic is a world-class player. I'm extremely happy to have completed this deal to bring Nemanja to Milan.


"He's one of the world's best defenders and his qualities, international pedigree and charisma will be an asset to the team and help bring through our younger players.

"He will bring added value to the club and is another piece of the great Inter side we are building. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Manchester United, Nemanja and his entourage for the professional and cooperative approach they have shown throughout the negotiations."
