Yes. You read it right. Arsenal skipper Thomas Vermaelen and Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic could play together next season at Inter Milan, if the reports are to be believed.
Vidic, who has been at Manchester United for eight long years, has confirmed recently that this will be his final season at the Old Trafford club.
The Serbian defender has been linked with several clubs including Spain and Russia, but it seems like he has agreed to join Inter Milan.
According to reports from Goal, Vidic has already agreed will sign a two-year contract worth £2.5 million (potentially rising to £2.9m) per year.
Reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano says that Vidic has informed of his decision to move to Italy, after a deal was agreed following the club’s 0-0 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium last Wednesday night.
Inter are also looking to sign Arsenal skipper Thomas Vermaelen, who has dropped down the pecking orders at the club and has hardly featured this season.
Vermaelen was a January target of Napoli, but even reports emerged that the Belgian has agreed in principles to join the Naples club, but the deal didn’t materialize.
However, according to Italian news media Calciomercato, Vermaelen is edging closer to join the Nerazzurri.
So, if both the deals materialize in the summer, we could Vidic and Vermaelen forging a central defensive partnership for Inter Milan.
