Inter’s president Erick Thorir stated last month a deal was ’90 per cent complete’ but now negotiations have reached a successful conclusion.
And Thorir believes Vidic is an excellent addition to his squad.
Speaking to Inter’s official website, Thorir said: “Vidic is a world-class player. I’m extremely happy to have completed this deal to bring Nemanja to Milan.
“He’s one of the world’s best defenders and his qualities, international pedigree and charisma will be an asset to the team and help bring through our younger players.
“He will bring added value to the club and is another piece of the great Inter side we are building.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Manchester United, Nemanja and his entourage for the professional and cooperative approach they have shown throughout the negotiations.”
Vidic has enjoyed a decorated career at Old Trafford, lifting five Premier League titles as well as grabbing a Champions League winners’ medal during his eight-year association with the club.
Meanwhile, Inter have also been keeping an eye on Vidic’s team-mate Patrice Evra, but it remains to be seen whether he will follow the Serb to the San Siro.
