The changes at Manchester United are set to continue, with Nemanja Vidic confirming he will be leaving the club in the summer.
The Serbian has been on the periphery under David Moyes this season, and he has confirmed he wants a new challenge at this stage of his career.
Vidic issued a statement to the club’s official website, in which he said:
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.
The Mail’s Joe Strange has picked up on the story and he has made the claim that Moyes wanted to keep Vidic at the club for one more season, but the Serbian was not interested in holding talks.
