There's more chance of Messi leaving Barca! Vidic agent quashes exit rumours
Nemanja Vidic's agent has dismissed any talk of the Manchester United captain leaving the club, claiming there is more chance of Lionel Messi leaving his beloved Barcelona.
Vidic, who was ruled out for the season after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury during United's Champions League exit in Basel last month, has been linked with Juventus and AC Milan.

It is reported that the Serb's wife, Ana, is unsettled in Manchester, and that this had caused the 30-year-old to consider his options.
But Vidic's agent Silvano Martina told Calciomercato.it: 'Vidic for Manchester United is like Messi for Barcelona. How could you take him
'He’s the United captain and a key player for Sir Alex Ferguson. A move next summer is absolutely not an option.

'The player is only thinking of recovering as soon as possible from his ugly knee injury.'
Vidic, who arrived at the club in January 2006, signed a new contract in 2010 that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2013-14 season.
