Nemanja Vidic is delighted by the prospect of winning an improved contract at Manchester United.

The People says Vidic, who picked up a nasty facial injury against Wigan, is on £30,000 a week which will be pushed up to £45,000 when talks begin in the new year.

That's still a long way short of the £100,000 weekly pay of defensive partner Rio Ferdinand, but sources close to Vidic revealed he is happy in Manchester and wants to commit his long-term future to the club.
