Top five replacements for Nemanja Vidic at Manchester United
Sir Alex Ferguson’s unconditional love for his Serbian center back Nemanja Vidic is no secret. The Manchester United manager once again stepped forth to defend Nemanja Vidic against viscous comments from the media, who suggested that the veteran defender should no longer be in Manchester United’s first team.
Injury and performance issues have led a number of analysts and Manchester United fans to question Sir Alex Ferguson’s decision to keep Nemanja Vidic as the first captain of Manchester United.
Nemanja Vidic, who has been sidelined with yet another injury, is being missed by Manchester United’s defensive lines since last season. When media question his ability to replicate his former form and place in the squad, the Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson stepped forward to defend Nemanja Vidic and claimed that his skipper never fully recovered from his knee injury last season.
The upcoming summer will probably be Sir Alex Ferguson’s last opportunity to cash in for Nemanja Vidic, who turns 31 this month. Sir Alex Ferguson is rebuilding his squad, so he could lose his Nemanja Vidic for younger blood.
The following is a list of world class defenders that Sir Alex Ferguson would consider as replacement for Nemanja Vidic.
1 – Neven Subotic
Neven Subotic appears to be the most likely replacement for Nemanja Vidic. Firstly, Neven Subotic is considered to be one of the best defenders in the Bundesliga. Secondly, Neven Subotic happens to be the international teammate of Nemanja Vidic, so he would the youngster would have an easier time settling in. Thirdly, Neven Subotic belongs to the German champions Borussia Dortmund, which is the same club who sold Shinji Kagawa to Manchester United last summer.
The 23-year-old center back is also being targeted by Chelsea. Neven Subotic is predicted to become a hot transfer prospect next summer, therefore expect Manchester United to place a bid on him.
