Inter Milan have confirmed signing of Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic. The Serbian defender will move to Italy after this season on a free transfer.
32-year-old announced his decision to leave Old Trafford few weeks ago with number of European clubs linked with a move for his services. Vidic confirmed his decision in his interview for official club website:
“It's the last year of my contract and I have had eight wonderful years here. My time at this great club will always rank as the best years of my career.
“I never could have imagined winning 15 trophies and I will certainly never forget that fantastic night in Moscow, memories that will live with me and the fans forever. However, I have decided that I will move on at the end of this season. I want to challenge myself again and try to make the best of myself in the coming years.”
Inter president Erick Thohir told the club's website: “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.
“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 co-operative approach they have shown throughout the negotiations.”
