I want to challenge myself again and try to make the best of myself in the coming years

Vidic has won five Premier League titles, three League Cups and the Champions League in 2008 during eight years at the Red Devils following a £7m move from Spartak Moscow in 2006.

And the current United captain revealed that he felt it was time to seek a new challenge in his career.

“It’s the last year of my contract and I have had eight wonderful years here. My time at this great club will always rank as the best years of my career,” Vidic said in a statement on United’s website.

“I never could have imagined winning 15 trophies and I will certainly never forget that fantastic night in Moscow, memories that will live with me and the fans forever. However, I have decided that I will move on at the end of this season. I want to challenge myself again and try to make the best of myself in the coming years.”

Vidic continued: “I’m not considering staying in England as the only club I ever wanted to play for here is Manchester United and I was lucky enough to be part of this club for so many years. I’ve got a few options to move on and I will choose the right one for me and for my family.

“I am now going to focus all my efforts on playing for Manchester United and do the best I can for the team until the end of the season. I hope this stops any further speculation about my future.”
