Nemanja Vidic Makes the Right Move Not Extending His Contract with Manchester United

+Read full article

Presse Sports – USA TODAY Sports

Serbian defender Nemanja Vidic has been one of the stars of Manchester United in the last few seasons, but it appears that their relationship could come to an end once this campaign is over.

Several reports have indicated that the experienced center-back is unwilling to extend his deal with The Red Devils. He will be a free agent once the year concludes, leaving him free to negotiate with any team that wants his services and abandoning the discipline of one of the most historic teams in the world.

It’s surely a big blow for Manchester United – especially considering Rio Ferdinand will likely retire at the end of this campaign – but in the eyes of Vidic this is the right thing to do. The Red Devils are clearly not the powerhouse they were last season under Sir Alex Ferguson’s management, and since Vidic has still a few competitive years ahead of him, he is making the right move looking to play elsewhere. He would surely anchor almost any defensive line as he has experience, quality and enough ability to still be considered a top-tier defender.

Surely several teams will approach him, and the likes of Bayern Munich, Juventus, FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have already expressed their interest in the 32-year-old. There’s a huge question mark in any negotiation since he earns around €4M per season, but any side that signs him would end up making a huge deal towards next season.

As of now, Vidic is still a Manchester United player and he will surely compete constantly to do his best for the team. He will give his best for the team that converted him into one of the best defenders in the world, and he will surely be missed. But Vidic is making his choice looking towards his own future, and in that sense this decision was a no-brainer.
