Man Utd's Vidic: I have offers from Real Madrid, Barcelona, AC Milan

Nemanja Vidic has revealed he's rejected Europe's biggest clubs to stay with Manchester United.

The Serbia defender told The Sun: "I got offers from Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid and I played a very honest game - I disclosed all these offers to my boss Sir Alex.

"He reacted quickly. I was told he was raising my pay to bring it to the level where my reputation is in the Premier League and Europe.

"After Milan and Real Madrid made their offers, Barcelona came in - they wanted to pay 30m for my services but after Sir Alex's move, I am definitely staying in Manchester until my contract expires in 2012.

"I don't care that I will still not be paid as much as my good friends Rio Ferdinand or Wayne Rooney but I guess I will be at the same level as Berbatov and Carrick."
