Manchester United morning news: Huge fee for Vidal, Fergie offering help

Old Trafford

A round up of news stories this morning about Manchester United.

The Express claims Manchester United will have to shell out £48 million for Arturo Vidal this January.

United have been linked with a move for the Chilean star ever since Louis van Gaal came in and replaced David Moyes as manager.

Whether United can stretch to such a huge fee after heavy summer spending remains to be seen.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has revealed he’s been getting help from Sir Alex Ferguson.

The United legend is in regular contact with Dyche, helping him to settle into the pressure of managing in the Premier League.

“There are a number of people I speak to and he is one of them. He is obviously a very important figure and always gives you really good, honest, helpful advice – no holds barred reality as he sees it, and he has been very good to me like that,” said Dyche.

Manchester United assistant boss Ryan Giggs has suggested that Angel Di Maria doesn’t need to be coached.

The Argentine has made an instant impact at the club following a £60 million move from Real Madrid in the summer.

“You don’t need to do a lot with him. He’s that sort of player, he’s a free spirit. He will take you from box to box quickly and he will create and score goals,” said the Welshman.
