Manchester United boss David Moyes insists he and skipper Nemanja Vidic both decided it was time for the Serbian to leave Old Trafford. "It was something that we all mutually agreed together," the United boss said.
"I think it was the right decision for club and player."
Vidic has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan. The Serb will skipper the Red Devils until the end of the season.
"He has been a brilliant servant for Manchester United," Moyes added.
"He is captain and it will remain that way until the end of the season.
"He has been a great player for us and we will continue using him."
