Vidic has been a target for Barcelona this summer, with the European Cup winners apparently acting on information that he would be willing, at the very least, to think about leaving English football. The 27-year-old has tried to play down those reports but the stories have persisted that he wants a new challenge and that his wife is not happy in Manchester.
"Vidic would be delighted to play at Barcelona as his dream is to go to the Spanish league," Fabbri said. "We have to analyse the situation but, being realistic, things are complicated at the moment. The team have just lost Ronaldo and Tevez and they do not want to lose another important piece of their starting XI once again."
Vidic's importance to the team can be gauged by the fact he won all of the club's player-of-the-season awards last season and Ferguson would be appalled at the mere suggestion that the Serbia international is thinking about his future. Nonetheless, it has become clear to the United management that Vidic wants to explore the possibility of breaking up his highly successful central defensive partnership with Rio Ferdinand if one of the two major Spanish clubs makes an official approach.
United's position is firmly that Vidic is not for sale at any time, and not just in the current predicament of having to play at Burnley tonight with five defenders, Vidic included, on the injury list. As well as commanding interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid, Vidic has also reportedly had some form of contact with Milan in the last few months.
What's the future of our Manchester United!!!
