Marouane Fellaini has risked the wrath of Manchester United fans by saying Angel di Maria would be a good signing for Paris St Germain.
Speaking to French football programme Telefoot, Fellaini’s comments have somewhat shocked fans given the somewhat uncertain future of Di Maria amid continued speculation linking him with a move to the French champions.
“Angel di Maria would be a good signing for PSG,” he said.
“He is a world class player.”
What should we make of these comments?
There is every chance that when the full interview is shown, Fellaini’s comments will be shown as a response to a loaded question by the interviewer asking if Di Maria would be a good signing for PSG.
However, even in that scenario, Fellaini should have been aware enough to not respond in that fashion because the speculation linking Di Maria to PSG is now going to be taken up a notch in intensity.
It is certainly a very strange thing for any player to say about his team-mate during the transfer window.
We will be looking into the quotes and listening to the full interview when it is available to find out the full context of what Fellaini said.
