Vidic agrees Inter move

Departing Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has agreed a deal to join Italian club Inter Milan at the end of the season according to goal.

The Serbia international announced his intention to leave Old Trafford last month and turned down contract talks with the Manchester club.

The 32-year old, who has won 203 caps in the red of United, is expected to sign next week and has agreed a two year contract which is to cost Inter £3m a season.

Since confirming his departure, the defender had been sought by the likes of Monaco, Galatasaray and Russian club Zent St Petersburg, but is now set for the Giuseppe Meazza and the Italian Serie A.

In a disappointing season for United, Vidic has struggled for consistent first-team opportunities and set his heart on a move away from the Old Trafford when his contract expires in the summer.

Red Devils boss David Moyes claimed the captain's exit was "mutually agreed".

"This is something we all mutually agreed together," said Moyes.

"I think it was the right decision for club and player. He has been a brilliant servant for United."

Vidic, who made his United debut in 2006 after joining for £7m from Spartak Moscow, stated his next move would be abroad, with Inter appealingly fitting the bill.

The Serb told United's website : I'm not considering staying in England as the only club I ever wanted to play for here is Manchester United.

"I never could have imagined winning 15 trophies. However, I have decided I will move on at the end of this season. I want to challenge myself again."

Vidic spent eight years at Old Trafford, winning four Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy.
