We’ve all heard the rumours that Nemanja Vidic fancied a move to Barcelona last summer, but in an interview with one of our fanzines, Red News, the defender has given out a very confusing message.
Remember when Cristiano Ronaldo used to get asked if he was staying and he could never really make up his mind? You knew he was off in the summer, but it was always ‘Only God knows the future’ and ‘I am very happy at Manchester United’.
Sadly, we’ve got the same mixed messages from Vidic, with him talking about the uncertainty of his future in one year, to claiming at the least he will see out the two and a half years on his contract.
“You never know what is going to happen,” Vidic said. “I can’t say what is going to happen in one year, two years’ time. At the moment, I’m happy and I’m here. [Let’s] see what the club is going to say, what is going to be. I want to play well here and for the fans and everyone to be happy with me. To see that I give the right effort, give my best, give 100 per cent. That is important to me. What is going to happen in the future, no one knows. I definitely have 2½ years [left on my] contract here and I will stay here.”
