Manchester United are hoping to complete a double deal for both loan star Radamel Falcao and Juventus midfielder Artuo Vidal ahead of the January window according to the Daily Star.
The Red Devils were the busiest of all Premier League clubs over the summer window, splashing around £150 million on new players, including £6 million to bring Falcao in on a season-long loan from Monaco.
Despite splashing the cash, Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal looks likely to carry on the spending in the new year, with the Dutchman keen on reinforcing certain areas of his squad including midfield.
According to reports they have already agreed a £43 million fee with Monaco to make Falcao's move permanent having offered the Colombian wages somewhere in the region of £250,000-per-week.
Manchester United are also keen on going back in for Vidal - who has publicly insisted once more that he has happy with Juventus this week - and if the Daily Star's figures are to be believed will make a £52 million offer for the Chilean.
That would make Vidal the second most expensive player in Manchester United's history, putting him behind record signing Angel di Maria.
Reports were rife over the summer that he could be on his way to Old Trafford, but various obstacles including questions over his knee following surgery and the fee being demanded by Juventus derailed the deal. According to the Star, it could be back on with the January window fast approaching.
Where that leaves Manchester United's move for Kevin Strootman remains to be seen. Van Gaal is said to be keen on landing the Dutchman once he has proven his fitness following his return from a serious knee injury later this year - however a move for Vidal would seemingly put an end to that.
