Inter confirm interest in signing Vidic from Manchester United

The veteran defender is set to leave the Red Devils on a free transfer in the summer and Nerazzurri director Piero Ausilio admits that the 32-year-old is a "great opportunity"
Inter director Piero Ausilio has confirmed that the Serie A side would be interested in signing Nemanja Vidic from Manchester United this summer.

The defender revealed on Thursday night that he would not be extending his stay at Old Trafford when his contract expires at the end of the season, with the Nerazzurri emerging as early frontrunners for the Serbian's signature.

Ausilio says that the club see "a great opportunity" in 32-year-old Vidic but expects stern competition from across the rest of Europe.

"Vidic is an important player whose contract expires in June. Like other European clubs, we will try to get something from this great opportunity," he told Tuttosport.

"He is one of the players we are tracking. He has an interesting profile for Inter as he has charisma and international experience.

"We will probably lose some players in his role because their contracts are up so he is someone we are trying to pay attention to.

"However, we're a long way from saying we've already done something with regards to Vidic and I don't feel ready to confirm anything."
