Could Vidic and Evra be on their way out?

Manchester United are looking to secure 17-year-old Dinamo Zagreb striker Robert Muric for just £300,000 - despite the player being valued at £6 million.

According to the Daily Mail, David Moyes is keen to bring the striker to Old Trafford and may be able to secure Muric's services for such a small fee because a dispute over whether he has signed professional forms with his club. If not, then United would merely need to pay compensation.

Muric's father also reportedly insisted his son, who has also been watched by Chelsea and Barcelona, would not be staying in Croatia and going to Hajduk Split, adding to the rumours of a switch to United.
