'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Vidic Exit Talk

Once again the subject of the future of the captain of our football club has generated a few column inches.

This morning, one Sunday tabloid has gone out on a limb to suggest that Nemanja Vidic could be in his final season for us.

Apparently Vidic, who is injured at the moment, is the subject of major interest from Barcelona and Juventus with both clubs aware that the Serbian defender is in the last year of his contract come the end of the season.

Barcelona appear to be looking for along-term replacement for Carles Puyol and are looking at splashing around 12 million whilst Juventus are gambling that a 16 million bid will lure Vidic away.

We can but wait and see!

Can't see us selling him and hope we don't. Don't think he'd go to juventus though that would be a step down. How are they doing on the old match fixing front nowadays

Vidic ruptured his cruciate ligaments last season, and has now had surgery on the cartilege in the same knee. At his age, this type of injury is not just going to heal up and be forgotten about. What you have is a player that will never recover his best form, and is most likely on the wane. Your manager is well known for getting rid of declining players (Stam the possible exception), but I don't see anyone paying decent money for Vidic, and you'll either be stuck with him like you're stuck with Ferdinand or will get rid of him for peanuts.

Fair point fcb but our defense has got to the point where anything will do and a 80% fit Vidic is still better than most defenders in the league. Also the cruciate is not as bad an injury as it was ten years ago it would have ended your career back then I know first hand I've not ruptured mine I shredded it. Still playing football though admittedly at nothing like the level that Vidic is at I'd struggle to get it to some pub teams but my game has not been detrimented by the injury apart from rustiness and fitness while recovering

Reckon we could still easily get 12-15 mil for him. Vidic when fit in my opinion is the best CB in the world, well rather he was but i imagine even a 1 legged Vidic is still better than most other defenders. To be honest as we learnt with Hargreaves we can't afford to have 90k a week on the bench not playing not including medical fees. Furthermore hoping he'll be fit again and using squad player CB's in his place is costing points, titles and money also. In my eyes it should be make or break for Vidic, I love the guy as a player but we can't wait for his return anymore. fcb, don't think we're stuck with ferdinand, think he's there to provide experience and mentor the younger centre halves.
