During the January transfer window, there were many speculations about the future of the captain of Manchester United. Vidic was linked with top clubs of Italian Serie A, such are Fiorentina, AC Milan and Juventus, but the player stayed at Old Trafford.

The contract of the former Serbian and current Manchester United captain ends at the end of this season and this transfer window was the last chance for the Red Devils to earn some money. Vidic is now free to negotiate with any club and according to SKY Italia journalist, Silvia Valini, Inter Milan is the next club the defender will play in.

The reporter’s source for this news, is an article on the website of Italian transfer expert Gianluca di Marzio. In his article, he states that the former European champion is set to sign Vidic ahead of other competing teams. This can be one way for the new club owner, Indonesian businessman Tohir, to return sympathies of supporters, after the fiasco with the transfer of Guarin to league rivals Juventus.

But, at the end, there are some things to consider – like Manchester United, Inter is still far away from securing a spot in the Champions League for next season. There is also the issue of whether Inter is capable of matching the salary offers of other European clubs who also need a defender like Vidic. And with recent injuries of Evans and Jones, Moyes now has only Smalling, Vidic and injury-returning Ferdinand in his squad ahead of a crucial part of the season – the race for 4th place at the end of the season and the knock-out stage of Champions League.
