Manchester United look in need of reinforcements, and it has been revealed that they have opened talks with Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal.

The Sun suggest that the club have opened talks with Vidal's agent, with the Chilean finding little gametime so far this season.

Vidal has an impressive CV, also spending time at Bayern Munich before his move to Catalonia.

The report suggests that United may only have to pay £13m to secure the signing, which could happen as early as January.
