It was once again a hectic weekend of Premier League action. Here are today's rumours.

Current Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has hinted that Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal might swap the Nou Camp for Old Trafford by joining Manchester United during next month's transfer window.

Combative midfielder Vidal has featured relatively infrequently for Barca so far this season, and he is said to be open to a permanent move in January.

Speaking over the weekend, Valverde appeared to hint that Vidal might be about to move on next month. He said: "Vidal is our player. We are happy with him. There are so many rumours. We will see tomorrow if he plays or not. And when the January transfer window arrives, we will see what happens.

"There's a lot of things going on in January but it's true that we have a lot of midfielders."

According to the Sunday Mirror, United have contacted Vidal's agent over a potential transfer.
