"With Vidic we bring experience - he is after all Manchester United's captain," Thohir told reporters.
"In the next few days we will know if it will happen, it would be a great thing.
"I won't make announcements to ruin the relationship with the club, it will arrive when it's done.
"Vidic tied to marketing? All of the decisions are collective -when we think of building a team we think of the pitch but also marketing.
"If we can have him it would be good since he is famous in Asia. The Premier League is the top in Indonesia, the player would add value to the club."
