The Serbia international’s Red Devils contract is set to expire at the end of the season and the reigning Premier League champions are yet to offer the 31-year-old a new deal.
Vidic, who moved to Old Trafford from Spartak Moscow in 2006, has been linked with a move to Juventus in recent months, and former United striker Tévez reckons his former team-mate would be a hit in Italy.
“He’s very strong, a really good defender. I played with him and against him, when I moved to Manchester City. Of course he’d be very suitable for the Italian championship,” Tévez told Tuttosport.
In September, United manager David Moyes admitted the Red Devils skipper Vidic deserves a new deal.
“It is something I have not discussed with the chief executive yet but Vida’s form at the moment would suggest he is well worthy of that,” said Moyes.
“Probably his injuries have been the reason why you might have to look at it, so the big thing is to see how he goes.
“But his form has been very good. We just need to hope he gets through and doesn’t pick up any more injuries.
“A lot of attention has been taken by the form of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie but defensively, we have done really well and Vida has been excellent.
“I have worked with some really good central defenders. But I have got to say, in the short time I have been here, Vida has been as good as there is.”
