French club side Paris Saint Germaine have reportedly agreed personal terms with want away Manchester United’s Argentine winger Angel Di Maria in view of transfer before the end of the summer. PSG bankrolled by wealthy Middle Eastern owners want to break the bank for the Argentine now that they are free from financial fair play shackles and are willing to pay United the £60m they spent when bringing him in from Madrid.
Di Maria, 27 joined Utd last summer from Madrid after a stellar season for the Spanish club side whom he helped win their 10th European champions league title fondly called “la Decima’ by Madridstas. He arrived United in a blaze of publicity and wowed the fans with superlative performances including a sublime goal against Leicester city which eventually won the EPL goal of the season gong. But a couple of injuries and the physicality of the EPL saw Di Maria subsequently struggle in later games. This was in addition to the Armed Robbery attack on his home which meant he and his young family left their residence and put up in a hotel.
These aforementioned factors coupled with poor performances meant the Argentine found himself in and out of the team which unsettled him giving the fact that he has been used to be a confirmed starter. It will also be recalled that Utd was second choice for Di Maria and he only joined because PSG couldn’t pay 60m for him because of FFP regulations. But with it now gone, PSG want to right their wrongs and are prepared to pull out the stops to sign Di Maria. However Man Utd coach Louis Van Gaal has insisted his star winger is going nowhere and Utd are under no obligation to sell their club record signing after just one season at the club. A deal involving reported Manchester United target Edison Cavani has been bandied about by the press but PSG would loathe to lose their Uruguayan marksman and United would prefer a straight cash deal.
