Manchester United will only consider selling Angel Di Maria if he asks to leave, according to the Daily Mail.
The Argentine has endured a torrid campaign in Manchester having scored just three league goals this term.
Plans are in place to clear the ‘dead wood’ from United but manager Louis van Gaal believes there is still a future at the club for Di Maria.
Ian Ladyman says Van Gaal is positive about the 27-year-old’s future at United so long as he has a good pre-season.
With clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain said to be interested in Di Maria, the onus to leave is entirely on the player himself.
For United, the potential signing of Ilkay Gundogan or Gareth Bale could soften the blow of Di Maria’s departure.
Either way, the £59m signing looks to have a much more comfortable situation at the club than some of his team mates.
Players such as Nani, Jonny Evans and Anders Lindegaard have not been given the luxury of a choice when it comes to their futures at Old Trafford.
