Manchester United Skipper Nemanja Vidic To Leave Old Trafford This Summer

Serb has won 15 major trophies during his eight years at the club. 

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has announced that he will be leaving Old Trafford at the end of the season, according to reports on BBC Sport Online.

The experienced Serbia international has been with the Red Devils since arriving in the north west from Russian giants Spartak Moscow in January 2006 for a fee of just £7m.

However, with the 32-year-old’s current deal at the Theatre of Dreams set to run out on June 30 2014, the central defender has now decided that this summer will be the best time to try out a new challenge in his career in a different league.

“I’m not considering staying in England as the only club I ever wanted to play for here is Manchester United,” Vidic told the club’s official website.

“I never could have imagined winning 15 trophies. However, I have decided I will move on at the end of this season. I want to challenge myself again.

“I have had eight wonderful years here,” added Vidic, who has made 201 Premier League appearances.

“My time at this great club will always rank as the best years of my career.

“I will certainly never forget that fantastic night in Moscow, memories that will live with me and the fans for ever.”
