Vidic left Manchester as a free agent last summer

Former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic’s agent has revealed that the Red Devils tried to re-sign the defender in December. He also suggested that the defender will not leave Intern Milan at the end of the season.

Vidic joined the Nerazzurri last summer as a free agent and has a contract with Inter until June 2017. When asked if Vidic would stay at Inter, his agent, Silvano Martina, told Gazzetta dello Sport, “I think he should, yes, because he has another two years left on his contract. 

“In fact, I want to reveal something. Last year, he [Vidic] made a specific choice to come to Milan, even though Manchester United wanted to keep him and kept calling up to December.”

The Serbian defender has struggled in the Serie A and played only 16 of Inter’s 28 league games this season. There have been reports that he also had a falling out with Inter manager Roberto Mancini. However, Martina denied the speculations and insisted the 33-year-old enjoys a good rapport with Mancini, who took over from Walter Mazzari in November. 

He said, “Vidic is a great professional and never had problems with anyone, not Mancini or Inter.”
