Nemanja Vidic Committed His Long Term Future to Manchester United

Manchester United center back Nemanja Vidic has decided to continue his club career at the Old Trafford. He was one of the priorities of Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho’s transfer target. However, the Serbian has now signed a new four-year contract with the Red Devils.

Nemanja Vidic joined Manchester Untied from Spartak Moscow in 2006 and very soon became Ferguson’s first choice central defender alongside Rio Ferdinand.

The 28-year-old has already won one Champions League, three Premier League, three League Cup and two Community Shield titles with the Old Trafford side. Over the last four seasons, Vidic represented United in 186 matches in all competitions, averaging more than 46 matches per season.

So, the performance of Nemanja Vidic was convincing enough to attract Mourinho’s attention. However, seeing the possibility of losing a highly reliable defender, Ferguson did not make any delay to offer him an improved deal in his attempt to ensure Vidic’s long term commitment to the club.

Sir Alex Ferguson has already won more titles then any other managers in the history of Premier League. However, he has all the reasons to be worried about United’s future. First of all, Manchester United is under huge debt and there is no way Ferguson could spend a lot in the transfer market.

Moreover, a number of reliable veterans like captain Garry Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and goalkeeper Edwin van Der Sar are now towards the end of their careers. Rio Ferdinand is also on the wrong side of 30.

The most important thing is that Untied youth side has failed to continue providing quality home-grown talents like it once did in early 1990s when a pool of young players including Neville brothers, Beckham, Giggs and Scholes came through the Manchester United youth academy.

Amid all these problems, the news of Nemanja Vidic staying must have come as a sigh of relief for Ferguson as well as Manchester United fans.
