Italians can start talking to the Red Devils skipper now that the January transfer window has opened.
Serie A outfit Fiorentina are hoping to be able to sign veteran Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic on a free transfer come the end of the season, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The experienced Serbia international’s current contract with the Red Devils runs out on June 30 2014, meaning that the centre back will be available for nothing next summer.
And as a result, Fiorentina head coach Vincenzo Montella is now hoping to be able to take advantage of the uncertainty surrounding Vidic’s future at Old Trafford at present by offering the 32-year-old a deal to move to Florence and end his career with La Viola.
However, the Serie A side’s chances of luring the central defender to Italy appear slim, at best, especially after new United boss David Moyes recently expressed his admiration for Vidic, who is also the captain of the Premier League champions too, calling his skipper the best defender that he had ever worked with in his managerial career to date.
But with just 13 Premier League appearances to his name so far in this campaign owing to his continuing injury problems, there still remains the distinct possibility that the club’s owners may not approve a new one-year deal for Vidic for next season though.
