Vidic tells Man Utd: Keep Alderweireld waiting

Former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic says Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld shouldn't be a summer priority.

Vidic, who made 300 appearances for the Red Devils, believes his former club should adjust their sights.

Speaking on Stadium Astro, the 37-year-old said: “Of course, I would like to see him there.

"But I think the club has to have a priority.

“What I see is, if you want to be in the Champions League next season and challenge for the Premier League, you have to strengthen the midfield.

“You need that depth in the midfield area.

“In defence they already have five players, so they can rotate, and it seems like they're doing well."
