Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic will leave at the end of this season.

The 32-year-old Serbia defender, whose contract expires in the summer, made his United debut in 2006.

He told United's website: "I'm not considering staying in England as the only club I ever wanted to play for here is Manchester United.

"I never could have imagined winning 15 trophies. However, I have decided I will move on at the end of this season. I want to challenge myself again."
