Vidic fit for Cardiff clash

Manchester United will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to ten games as they travel to Cardiff City on Sunday afternoon.

The champions closed the gap on Arsenal to just five points after beating the league leaders 1-0 at Old Trafford two weeks ago, and could rise to second place if results go their way this weekend.

England trio Phil Jones, Michael Carrick and Danny Welbeck are all set to miss out though Rafael, Robin van Persie and captain Nemanja Vidic are all set to feature.

Malky Mackay’s men sit in fourteenth place ahead of this game – the first meeting between the sides in over fifty years.

Meanwhile, David Moyes has been told he will need to pay £20m if he wants to sign Leighton Baines from former club Everton, according to the Daily Star.

United failed with two bids for the England international during the summer, but could look set to revive their interest when the transfer window reopens in January.

Finally, Federico Macheda has re-joined Doncaster Rovers on loan, Sky Sports understands.

The former Italy U21 striker played five Championship games for Paul Dickov’s side earlier this season before returning to Old Trafford due to injury.
