- Toby Alderweireld, 30, has been linked with a summer move to Old Trafford
- Vidic says United should sign a midfielder rather than a central defender

Manchester United should focus on signing a midfielder rather than a central defender, says Nemanja Vidic.
Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld, 30, has been linked with a summer move to Old Trafford.
The Belgium centre-back was a target last summer and he has a £26million release clause in his contract.

But former centre-half Vidic thinks midfield options are a more pressing issue for United as Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling have impressed since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho.
Vidic told Stadium Astro: ‘Of course, I would like to see him (Alderweireld) there.
‘But I think the club has to have a priority.

‘You need that depth in the midfield area.
‘In defence they already have five players, so they can rotate, and it seems like they’re doing well.’
United are tracking Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who is a free agent at the end of the season.
