Angel di Maria has decided to get his Manchester United shirt number tattooed on his arm as part of a new sleeve design.
Much has been said about Man United’s record signing and whether he is happy to stay at the club in the long-term but it hasn’t stopped him getting no.7 tattooed on his arm.
Of course, no.7 is also what Di Maria wears for the Argentinian national side but at a time where his future has been in the press, it’s something Di Maria will be all too aware of how United fans will see it.
The latest reports now suggest Di Maria is keen to remain at Man United and build on his first season at the club, something which fans are certainly keen to see happen.
It hasn’t gone swimmingly for Di Maria since he became United’s record signing in the summer. His stunning form right at the start of the season has been followed by injuries, varied performances and a poor red card which personified his struggles in the FA Cup game against Arsenal.
There have been disappointments and delights in equal measure with Di Maria so far at United but if he does remain at Old Trafford, he’ll no doubt be a much improved player in his second season having had the time to settle in England.
