Vidic as vital for Man Utd as Messi is for Barcelona - agent

The agent of Nemanja Vidic believes his client is as important for Manchester United as Lionel Messi is for Barcelona.

The Serbian centre-back is still recovering from a knee injury sustained at the start of December and is determined to get back to his best for the reigning champions.

His representative Silvano Martina says that Vidic will not be departing Old Trafford anytime soon as he is so vital to Sir Alex Ferguson's plans.

"Vidic for Manchester United is like Messi for Barcelona. How could you take him?," Martina told calciomercato.it.

"He's the United captain and a key player for Sir Alex Ferguson. A move next summer is absolutely not an option.

"The player is only thinking of recovering as soon as possible from his ugly knee injury."
