The Star Tribune has the details.

The owners of the Major League Soccer (MLS) expansion franchise the Minnesota United are in talks about playing games at U.S. Bank Stadium — and it has left the stadium’s primary tenant, the Minnesota Vikings, crying foul and threatening to sue.

United owners and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA), which manages the $1.1 billion building, have been in discussions about an exhibition game — and perhaps more — at the stadium. But the Vikings say they are being shut out of the discussions in violation of state law and the stadium’s use agreement.
