& # 39; I'd like to see Toby Alderweireld at Manchester United but have enough defenders & # 39 ;: Reds legend Nemanja Vidic says the former club should sign midfielders in the summer
- Toby Alderweireld, 30, was connected with a summer move at Old Trafford
- Vidic says that United should sign a midfielder rather than a central defender
- Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling have impressed in recent months
"Manchester United should focus on the signing of a midfielder rather than a central defender," says Nemanja Vidic.
Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld, 30, has been linked to a summer trip to the Old Trafford.
The Belgian central defender was a target last summer and has a £ 26 million release clause in his contract.

But the former midfielder Vidic thinks that options in midfield represent a more pressing problem for United, as Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling impressed because Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho.
Vidic said at the Astro stadium: "Of course, I'd like to see him (Alderweireld) there.
& # 39; But I think the club should have a priority.

& # 39; What I see is, if you want to be in the Champions League next season and the challenge for the Premier League, you have to strengthen the midfield.
"You need that depth in the midfield area.
& # 39; In defense they already have five players, so they can rotate, and it looks like they're going well & # 39;
United is monitoring Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who is a free agent at the end of the season.
