Inter Milan have reportedly terminated the contract of defender Nemanja Vidic, paving the way for the Serbian ace to move in January.
The former Manchester United captain moved to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in 2014, but struggled with injuries and form throughout his time with the Nerazzurri.
Having fallen further out of favour under coach Roberto Mancini, with the club signing the likes of Miranda and Jeison Murillo in the summer, Vidic’s opportunities in Milan have become severely limited with a hernia operation in August keeping him sidelined.
While the veteran defender helped United to five Premier League titles and a Champions League triumph during his eight-year spell at Old Trafford, he is unsurprisingly not the same player that he once was.
Nevertheless, the 34-year-old could be a useful addition to the right squad, and so it remains to be seen what he opts to do next in his career.
MLS side DC United have been linked with a move, as noted by Sky Sports, with the franchise also under the control of Inter owner Erick Thohir. Although Vidic may well believe that he can still offer something to a top European club.
As a result, there is likely to be some interest in the major leagues, and particularly given that he will be available on a free transfer, he could be an appealing option.
