Serbia international Nemanja Vidic insists he will stay at Manchester United even though his wife is not enjoying life in England. AC Milan, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all been linked with the 27-year-old defender who insists he will see out his United contract, which still has three years to run. Vidic was quoted in The Sun as saying: "My wife Ana is unhappy with our lifestyle in Manchester but I am not going to change my mind as I am happy with the team and Manchester and the club's ambition for next season. "I got offers from Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid and I played a very honest game - I disclosed all these offers to my boss Sir Alex (Ferguson). "He reacted quickly. I was told he was raising my pay to bring it to the level where my reputation is in the Premier League and Europe. "After Milan and Real Madrid made their offers Barcelona came in - they wanted to pay £30million for my services but, after Sir Alex's move, I am definitely staying in Manchester until my contract expires in 2012. "I don't care that I will still not be paid as much as my good friends Rio Ferdinand or Wayne Rooney but I guess I will be at the same level as (Dimitar) Berbatov or (Michael) Carrick."
