Vidic linked with MLS after leaving Internazionale

The next port of call for Nemanja Vidic could be Major League Soccer, after he had his contract with Inter Milan terminated by mutual consent.

The Manchester United legend joined the Nerazzurri in the summer of 2014 upon the expiry of his contract at Old Trafford, but struggled to find his best form during his debut campaign in Serie A. Inter are chasing the Scudetto this season but have done so without the help of the Serbian, who has spent the duration on the sidelines following hernia surgery in August.

As the 34-year-old had fallen down the pecking order under Roberto Mancini, Inter have agreed to terminate his contract and release him from the club. It is widely thought that the central defender will now consider his options, and it has been reported that he already has an offer on the table from MLS side DC United who are owned by San Siro president Erick Thohir.

During his time in England, Vidic was well regarded as one of the best defenders in the Premier League where he formed a hugely successful partnership with Rio Ferdinand. He left United after eight glorious years in Manchester, and helped Sir Alex Ferguson’s side to five league titles, three League Cups and the 2008 UEFA Champions League in Moscow.
