All summer Nemanja Vidic´s agent, Paolo Fabbri, has been denying transfer rumours linking his player with a move away from United to another top European club.
However, Catalan radio station RAC-1 and El Mundo Deportivo reported Fabbri as saying: “It would be a dream for Vidic to play for Barcelona. He would be delighted to join them, as he wants to play in La Liga. We have to take a close look at the situation. But things are complicated at the moment. Manchester United have just lost Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez, and they do not want to lose another important player.”
Vidic’s agent has spoken out again today.
“This is not true,” Fabbri said when asked about the comment. “I never said these things. Nemanja is happy in Manchester. If Barcelona do make an offer for him then it is up to United to make a decision.”
It´s all a bit fishy really, isn’t it? I think it’s fairly obvious his agent has been up to something but hopefully now it will just amount to nothing. There’s no way the club would sell Vidic but we certainly do need to be prepared for next summer. The Times is reporting that we are putting together a new deal which will give him a pay rise and increase his contract past 2012.
