Inter Milan are set to terminate Nemanja Vidic’s contract in January, according to Corriere della Sport.
The Serbian centre-half hasn’t made an appearance this season due to a hernia injury he picked up earlier this year and the Italian giants want to cut their losses.
Vidic joined Inter from Manchester United in the summer of 2014 but struggled to settle in Serie A with his erratic Nerazzurri performances making headlines. His contract with Inter runs until 2017 but the club aren’t expecting buyers for the 34-year-old defender so they’re ready to pay him off.
He was linked with a return to United last season when their defence was struggling in Louis van Gaal’s first few months in charge but no concrete interest ever became apparent.
It is believed that he would never have left United if he had known that David Moyes would be sacked before the end of his disastrous season in charge, agreeing to join Inter midway through the season. Vidic is one of the best-paid players on Inter’s payroll but would probably accept a significant wage drop for his next club.
