Manchester United Set for Audacious £30m Centre Back Move

Real Madrid try to really piss Sir Alex off!

The Rumour

Real Madrid are set to launch an audacious £30m bid to lure Manchester United star Nemanja Vidic to the Bernabeu.

Just hours after believing they had tied up a world record £56m deal for AC Milan playmaker Kaka, Real are flexing their financial muscles early this summer in a bid to recapture the La Liga title from fierce rivals and Champions League winners, Barcelona.

The Kaka move was cast into doubt late last night with Chelsea believing they had out-bid the Spanish giants’ huge fee as well as the €90m contract over five years for the Brazilian superstar.

Serbian defender Vidic, however, who is under contract until 2012, has been a colossus for United in recent years and Sir Alex Ferguson will fight tooth and nail to hang onto the Old Trafford favourite – but family reasons may lead to a move.

It is understood Vidic’s wife has failed to adapt to life in England and would prefer to move to a hotter climate and new Real President Florentino Perez is ready to make his move.

The Analysis

Nemanja Vidic was arguably the player of the season at Old Trafford last season and Sir Alex will never let him leave to join Real Madrid, a team that the Man United boss hates with a passion after the La Liga side repeatedly attempted to tap up Cristiano Ronaldo among others.

Florentino Perez appears to be a man with a plan, albeit that plan is to buy every footballer on planet Earth in order to level the playing field with arch rivals Barcelona. Having almost certainly secured Kaka the newly elected president is going after a succession of new galactico’s but may be barking up the wrong tree by pursuing the Serbian centre back.

The Likelihood

Vidic to Real Madrid: Not over Sir Alex’s dead body will this happen!
