Following reports in this morning’s Daily Mail linking Nemanja Vidic with a move to Real Madrid, our captain’s agent, Paolo Fabbri, has come out quickly to deny any possible move.
There were strong rumours that Vidic was going to leave in the summer of 2010, which his agent repeatedly denied, before the player went on to sign a new four year deal.
The Daily Mail claimed that Vidic wasn’t looking for a move, rather the manager was prepared to sell the player to Real Madrid next summer if the price was right.
It was rumoured that Vidic and Sir Alex Ferguson had fallen out over the player’s decision to play for Serbia against the club’s wishes. However, now Vidic has retired from International football, there is the suggestion that the two have made peace.
“There is no news. The move is not possible,” Paolo Fabbri told The International Business Times. “Vidic has no will and has made no request to leave Manchester United.”
