Anzhi Launch Massive £32m Bid for Man United Defender Nemanja Vidic

Dagestan based side keen on Old Trafford centre-back.

German source claim that Russian big spenders Anzhi Makhachkala are preparing a €40m (£32m) bid for Man United defender Nemanja Vidic.

As much as Sir Alex Ferguson may value the Serbian international an offer of this magnitude for an injury prone player closing in on his 31st birthday may be too good to pass up.

The determined centre back has been a rock for much of his time at Man United but over the past 18 months the former Spartak Moscow man has struggled with form and fitness and one would imagine that Ferguson would be even more likely to accept an offer of this size if he could be sure that the likes of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling could steer clear of injuries on a more regular basis.

Indeed Ferguson could instead opt to take the sum offered for Vidic and buy a top notch replacement some years his junior, perhaps a player like Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels.

Nemanja Vidic may be enticed by the chance of a new challenge having spent six and a half years at Old Trafford and the reported wage offer of €8m (£6.5m) a year may also play a part in his decision making process.
