Nemanja Vidic Could Leave Manchester United For Nothing in the Summer: Nightly Soccer Report

vidic contract crisis Nemanja Vidic Could Leave Manchester United For Nothing in the Summer: Nightly Soccer Report

As if things couldn’t get any worse for Manchester United, defender Nemanja Vidic could leave the club on a free transfer in the summer after his agent has ruled out a contract extension at the end of this season.

Vidic has only six months remaining on his contract, but the Serb wants to evaluate his options before deciding whether to stay with United or move to another top club.

Vidic’s agent Silvano Martina told Radio Crc in Napoli:

“Vidic, given his contract situation, has several teams looking at him. Vidic is a very good player and will have no trouble finding a new club. For the time being we are remaining calm. However, at the moment, I would rule out an extension with Manchester United.”

It sounds like the player’s agent is trying to get Vidic a whopping new deal and a bigger pay check, but given United’s current predicament, it’s more likely than ever that Vidic will listen closely to offers from other clubs.

    Thats a dagger to the heart. He’s a true red and I won’t blame him if he leaves but I don’t think he will. He’s one of the best to ever put the shirt on and deserves better.

  2. Why? says:

    Evra’s contract is also up in the Summer. Rooney needs a new contract as he is into his last year next season, I wouldn’t have thought he’ll sign one not only is he the highest paid in the league (can Utd afford to up it?) it doesn’t look like Utd are going to get a Champions league place. RVP team seem to be coming out with bad rumblings as well as Utd losing £200m off their value in a short period. Things are not looking to good for Utd.
