Nemanja Vidic Signs For £7m

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.
