Inter target Nemanja Vidic has confirmed that he is leaving Manchester United in the summer and that he is moving abroad.
Reports this week have grown that the Nerazzurri are talking with the 32-year-old centre-back, who is out of contract at Old Trafford in the summer.
On from reports of a salary cap-breaking offer from Erick Thohir’s team has come the player’s confirmation that he is leaving the Red Devils in June.
“It's the last year of my contract and I have had eight wonderful years here. My time at this great club will always rank as the best years of my career,” Vidic has commented in a statement released through United’s official website.
“I never could have imagined winning 15 trophies and I will certainly never forget that fantastic night in Moscow, memories that will live with me and the fans forever.
“However, I have decided that I will move on at the end of this season. I want to challenge myself again and try to make the best of myself in the coming years.
“I'm not considering staying in England as the only club I ever wanted to play for here is Manchester United and I was lucky enough to be part of this club for so many years. I've got a few options to move on and I will choose the right one for me and for my family.
“I am now going to focus all my efforts on playing for Manchester United and do the best I can for the team until the end of the season. I hope this stops any further speculation about my future.”
