Inter Milan have today confirmed that Manchester United club-captain Nemanja Vidic will join the Italian side in the summer.
Vidic announced last month that he would not be signing a new contract and would be moving to pastures new. Inter Milan have been heavily linked with the big Serbian and the news was finally confirmed today that he would be joining the Italians in the summer.
Inter Milan confirmed the news via their website, with the club president delighted.
President Thohir said: “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.”
Vidic joined Manchester United in the 2005/06 season, where to date the Serbian international has made 204 Premier League appearances while netting 15 goals.
