Scouting For Moyes: Three Possible Vidic Replacements In January

Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic’s departure looks more probable than ever, as agent Silvano Martina hinted his 32-year-old agent is not likely to extend his stay at Old Trafford after his contract expiry date this summer. Nevertheless it is not only the Serb, whose deal with the Red Devils might not be extended, whereas defenders Rio Ferdinand and French Patrice Evra are also set on missing out on the renewal with United. Vidic, despite being the club‘s captain (since 2011), after 8 years of service at Manchester United, might sign for a new side. It would be a huge blow for the Red Devils, now that they will be lacking their key leader in the line-up, as a result David Moyes should start his searches for a rational replacement for Vidic. Here are the top candidates to be signed by the English giants:


1. Andersol Vital ‘Dede’ da Silva | Cruzeiro

The Brazilian, who is already a target for many top clubs like Liverpool, could step into Vidic’s shoes aswell. The central back has been playing regularly for Cruzeiro since this season’s start, however a move away to a top club may increase his chances of making it to the World cup squad. The 26-year-old’s height of 192cm enables the player to not only be a great aerial defender, but also a goal-scorer, who is a threat for the opponents in the set pieces. Just like Vidic.
