United ready to rescue Nemanja Vidic from Inter Milan.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is considering rescuing former Old Trafford hero Nemanja Vidic from a hellish season at Inter Milan, where he has been transfer listed by Roberto Mancini, with the Daily Star reporting that the Serbian is being primed as a short term solution to the Red Devils’ problems at the back.
Vidic moved to the San Siro on a free transfer in the summer, with Inter handing him a £50,000 per week contract and making him one of the pillars of their attempt to rebuild after some disappointing seasons, but the experienced centre back has largely been dreadful in Serie A and can no longer make it into Mancini’s first team.
United, however, have suffered at the back since allowing both Rio Ferdinand and Vidic to leave on free transfer in the same summer, with a combination of inexperience and a lack of options at the back leading van Gaal to turn to the likes of inexperienced teenager Paddy McNair.
Inter are likely to be keen just to shift the error-ridden Vidic and his vast wage packet, meaning that United are unlikely to have to pay a transfer fee to bring him back, but fans could view a move for the battering ram as a backwards step.
