Vidic Back But His Departure Looks Inevitable

Vidic Back But His Departure Looks Inevitable

Nemanja Vidic is back in contention to face Portsmouth tomorrow. The Serbian centre-back pulled out of United's game at Arsenal in the last minute after feeling some pain in training but he's had no problems during the week and he might be available against the relegation strugglers.

On a related note, the Guardian reports that Vidic's departure is inevitable as even the players at United admitted he's likely to be gone by the end of the season. Vidic consistently denied any speculation that he or his wife was unhappy in England but his agents are believed to be fuelling rumours about a possible move to Barcelona, Real Madrid or AC Milan in the summer.

The paper argues that the purchase of Chris Smalling was merely an answer to the increasingly likely departure of the Serbian. Vidic's contract expires in 2012 and if the club wants good money for him then he must be sold this summer.

I don't know if it's true or not, I just wish this thing would be resolved as soon as possible. Either Vidic should speak up and confirm that he wants to leave or he should sign a new contract. Because there are lots of things wrong with modern football but none of them is so frustrating and annoying than a protracted transfer saga.

He has spoken up a few times. Its just that the media (and most of us) dont quite believe him somehow. Possibly because of our experiences with a certain Mr Ronaldo. Personally, I think the time is right to sell him. There is a real lack of CB talent out there and although he is turning 29 soon, the fact he is one of the top 3 in his position should increase his value. Papers are talking about £20M but that is just a stupidly low figure. His age, talent, rarity, experience, current contract and competition for his signature - all dictate that we should get at least £30M - possibly £35/40M. For a 29 year old who seems to be picking up a few injuries - thats good money.

We should be able to get a huge transfer fee for him, considering he is arguably the best defender in the best league in the world. He's one of those players who I wouldn't mind seeing leave as he's done enough for the club just as long as we get a fair price for him, Rooney on the other hand...

I think he wants to stay at Utd, but his family want to move - be a shame to see him go, but if we can get decent money for him then seen as we have played with virtually no defenders for several months, have we actually really missed him?
