Manchester United star attracting Italian interest

Nemanja Vidic (Manchester United)Juventus are ready to launch a move for Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic, according to reports from The Express.

The no-nonsense Serbian international has been on the Old Lady’s radar for some time, but they have been unable to convince the Premier League champions to sell.

However, Juve are ready to launch another move next year.

Vidic’s current contract expires in 2015, and if he has not penned a new deal by February, the Serie A giants will up their interest.

The 31-year-old’s agent, Silvano Martina, is thought to have a close relationship with the Turin side, which the club are hopeful of exploiting.

Juve are also optimistic that the chance of competing for the Italian title may be enough to convince Vidic to move on, with the Eastern European ace having won just about every available prize at Old Trafford.

United boss David Moyes is desperate to keep his rugged centre-back, but may alter his stance if his pursuit of Dortmund’s Neven Subotic is successful.

The Scot is acutely aware that Vidic and fellow defender Rio Ferdinand are not getting any younger, and may look to push his building plans forward.

The ex-Spartak Moscow man’s injury record is also a concern.

Is it time for Manchester United to sell Nemanja Vidic?
