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

Nemanja Vidic Signs For 7m

Sir Alex Ferguson expects Nemanja Vidic to be a 'terrific addition' to his Manchester United squad when the formalities are completed to bring the defender to Old Trafford. United have agreed a fee with Spartak Moscow for the highly-rated Serbia & Montenegro international defender.

The 24-year-old Vidic has become one of the most sought-after players in Europe after informing the Russian side of his intention to quit the club during next month's transfer window.

Ferguson: 'I am delighted the two clubs have come to an agreement. Nemanja is a quick, aggressive centre-half and at 24 will be a terrific addition to the squad.'

Although Champions League holders Liverpool and Serie A outfit Fiorentina both expressed an interest in the centre-back, United were able to pull off the coup.

The fee remains undisclosed but is believed to be around the 7million mark, with Vidic set to fly into Manchester to discuss personal terms and have his medical.

I haven't heard of this person in football but I hope he can be the answer to United's defensive problems, perhaps he could take a leading role in sorting out the defence, he could even be the next Jaap Stam, with him and Van Der Sar, Manchester United's defence should be as good as Chelseas.
