Can this be the man who holds the key to securing Manchester United a record breaking Championship title? A Serbian central defender who came to Old Trafford for a bargain fee of £7 million four years ago? Compare that figure to the £60 million plus that Sir Alex Ferguson is reported to have paid for the combined signatures of Rio Ferdinand and Dimitar Berbatov and you begin to see the irony of football!

One is a sublime but injury prone E

ngland captain while the other is a brilliant footballer who seems to lack consistency. Yet here’s a previously unknown, cut price signing from Russia’s Spartak Moscow, who may end up being the catalyst for a momentous season!

Captain Nemanja Vidic has been described as a monster in a United team which has so far proven to be unbeatable in 21 Premier and 6 Champions League matches so far this season – an incredible feat in the most closely fought title race for years.

Is the £7 million Vidic the best value Ferguson signing since Cantona?
