After 8 trophy laden years at Old Trafford, club captain Nemanja Vidic is set to leave Manchester United for Inter Milan.
Last night the club releases a statement confirming that the Serbian defender will be leaving thee Red Devils. After being a bedrock in the United defence for the past 8 years and becoming a true fan favourite over the years, Manchester United’s warrior has said that he is looking for a new challenge.
Apparently the big Serb was outraged about not being offered a new contract and declared his intention to leave shortly after that. David Moyes has announced several times that he will be initiating a clear-out at Old Trafford, showing no mercy even to the club captain.
United fans have been quick to reinforce their message on Twitter that although Vidic was slowly past it, having your captain leave is maybe a damning report on the players relationship with David Moyes.
Not a great message when club Captain wants to leave for a new challenge. #vidic

Wow! Vidic signs for Inter. This Moyes project is going to be brilliant or go bust, both spectacularly! #ManUtd

Gutted Vidic is going. Phenomenal defender and half of one of the great CB pairings. Hope it’ll now very much be Evans’ time to shine

I think Vidic leaving marks the start of a generational change at Manchester United. Would not be surprised if Evra and Ferdinand leaves too

United getting rid of Vidic is a brave yet correct decision by Moyes.

For me Vidic is past his best, I don't feel any blame should lie with Moyes as long as he isn't relying upon Jones, Smalling & Evans! #shop
