Inter Milan confirms signing of Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic

Nemanja Vidic will join Inter Milan at the end of the season, the Italian club have announced.

Vidic announced in February that he would be leaving Manchester United in the summer, but ruled out joining another English club, and Inter Milan chief Erick Thohir subsequently revealed they were close to signing the defender.

Following negotiations, Inter confirmed on Wednesday that a deal had been agreed with Vidic making the move to the San Siro at the end of the season.
“Vidic is a world-class player. I’m extremely happy to have completed this deal to bring Nemanja to Milan. He’s one of the world’s best defenders and his qualities, international pedigree and charisma will be an asset to the team and help bring through our younger players,” Thohir told the club’s website.

“He will bring added value to the club and is another piece of the great Inter side we are building. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Manchester United, Nemanja and his entourage for the professional and cooperative approach they have shown throughout the negotiations.”
Vidic made his debut for United in January 2006 and in his eight years at the club he has won 15 trophies, including the Champions League in 2008.
