Transfer latest: Nemanja Vidic “offers himself” to Barcelona

Serbian’s wife wants to leave rain and “joyless fans” behind

Nemanja Vidic

Back in March, Nemanja Vidic rubbished rumours of a move away from stinky rainy Manchester to beautiful and not-at-all-dull-and-industrial Milan. “He loves it in Manchester and will stay put,” reasoned his agent.

However, Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo are today claiming that Vidic, via a person he trusts, has “offered himself” to Barcelona. Furthermore, the article states that Vidic has made Manchester Utd aware of his desire to leave.

Mundo claim the transfer request comes on the insistence of his wife Ana Ivanovic, who is, sadly, no relation to the hot tennis player. Apparently, she no longer wants to put up with the “inhospitable climate” of Manchester, and seeks a sunnier home in Italy or Spain.

Vidic, under contract until 2012, would probably cost the Catalan giants around £30m.

    Should “not-all-all-dull-and-industrial” be “not-at-all-dull-and-industrial”?

    I actually wouldn’t be surprised if Real Madrid put in a bid with the outgoing F. Cannovaro looking to get back on Juve’s books. They might have been successful too had it not been for the Ronaldo saga.
