Galatasaray go for Man Utd's Vidic

Galatasaray are to make a play for Manchester United’s Nemanja Vidic, the Daily Mail has reported, offering the centre-back the chance to leave Old Trafford this summer when his contract expires.

Vidic can discuss terms of a move with clubs outside England already and Gala are willing to offer the Serbian an improvement on his current weekly wage of £90,000. The same agent who arranged Roberto Mancini’s switch to the club as manager is attempting to put together the deal for Vidic, the newspaper adds.


Galatasaray contacted United about the possibility of signing Vidic this month but were rebuffed, with Mancini now resolved to signing the player at the end of the season. Vidic can expect to command a pay packet in the region of £3m, the Mail claims, with substantial bonuses. That would still leave him somewhat behind the £5.4m paid to Wesley Sneijder, but is on par with Didier Drogba’s earnings.


Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna is another player on Mancini’s shopping list, while interest in John Terry saw Galatasaray offer the Chelsea captain a three-year contract worth more than £3m a season.


Gala are relying on the offer of Champions League football to attract their big-name targets, in the hope that the chance to continue playing in the competition can trump offers from more prestigious leagues across Europe.


Vidic joined United in 2006 and has gone on to play almost 300 times for the club, winning the Premier League title on five occasions and the Champions League in 2008. He also won more than 50 caps for Serbia prior to his international retirement in 2011.
