AC Milan are set to pounce for Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic if he doesn’t feature in David Moyes’ plans according to the Daily Mirror.

Vidic’s last campaign was decimated by injury as he appeared just 23 times in all competitions and now David Moyes could be looking to bring in Benfica’s Ezequiel Gary to replace him, according to the Mirror’s writer.

And they say that if this is the case, AC Milan are set to take advantage as they see Vidic as the perfect man to play alongside Philippe Mexes.

Garay impressed for Benfica on their run to the Europa League final and is five years younger than Vidic, so would make an ideal replacement. It remains to be seen though whether Moyes see’s value in Vidic and wants to keep him around.

Vidic is one of several players who could be set to leave Old Trafford with Patrice Evra bracing himself for a potential move if Leighton Baines comes in, according to The Sun. It remains to be seen though whether Moyes will make big changes or stick with the more recognised players in his first season at Old Trafford.

Would Moyes be right to let Vidic go? Is he still important despite his injury problems? Is Garay the man to replace him? Thoughts welcome below.
