Manchester United are in serious talks to sign World Cup duo Arturo Vidal and Daley Blind, according to The Daily Mail. 

The report has suggested that the Red Devils - who completed the signing of Argentine superstar Angel di Maria yesterday - could now add a further two players to their squad before the close of the transfer window next week.

Vidal is needed 

And it appears that Vidal, who has been linked to Old Trafford all summer, could finally be on his way to the club, despite concerns from Louis van Gaal over the player's fitness. The Chilean ace, who starred in this summer's World Cup,  endured knee surgery last season, and won't come cheap for the Red Devils. 

United, who have already splashed out well over £100 million in this transfer window, are still in desperate need of improvement in the middle of the park, but the report has suggested that Vidal could cost them as much as £30 million. 

Manchester United fans are certainly craving the signature of Vidal, with the likes of Marouane Fellaini, Tom Cleverley and Co. all proving far too inconsistent. Michael Carrick, meanwhile, is currently on the sidelines with a long term injury, whilst Brazilian midfielder Anderson doesn't look good enough for the Red Devils. 

Versatile Blind 

Blind's signature could also prove quite the coup for United's Dutch coach, as they look to improve following a disastrous start to the season. The utility man, who has been rated at £18 million, can play at left-back, centre-back and central-defensive midfield. 

The Red Devils are certainly in need of defensive recruitments after the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra departed the club at the end of last season. United have certainly looked fragile at the back this term, with last night's 4-0 humiliating defeat against MK Dons proving the club's worst performance yet under the Van Gaal regime. 

United fans will, however, be excited by the addition of Argentine star Angel di Maria, and the potential signing of Vidal and Blind would further raise the club's spirits as they go in search of major improvement.
