The ex-skipper departed Old Trafford at the end of last season to link up with Italian giants Inter Milan. However, he has struggled to recapture his best form in Serie A and is already being linked with an early return home.
And current United star Paddy McNair has admitted that he would love to line up alongside the big Serb.
“I grew up watching Vidic play when he was here, so I’ve got to go for him.”
However Vidic doesn’t feature in McNair’s all-time top two of favourite defenders, but another ex-United defender, Rio Ferdinand, makes the cut.
He added: “All-time, probably Rio Ferdinand and Sergio Ramos.
“I trained with Rio a few times when he was here, and he passed on a few tips, and Ramos is a really good player for Real Madrid.
“He’s more of an all-round footballer than a defender.”
