Inter Milan have confirmed that Nemanja Vidic will move to the Serie A club from Manchester United in the summer.
Vidic had already told fans he would be leaving Old Trafford and it was widely expected that Inter would be his destination which has been proved correct.
Speaking to Inter Milan’s official website about the deal, president Erick Thohir was delighted to have concluded the deal.
“Vidic is a world-class player,” he said.
“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’s career is far from over and in the slower pace of Serie A, he could flourish once again. It will be sad to see our captain leave but he has chosen to try and extend his career elsewhere, so good luck to him.
