Angel di Maria’s rumoured move to Paris Saint-Germain could be completed by the weekend, according to a recent report in France’s L’Equipe.
The Manchester United winger is believed to have agreed personal terms with PSG amidst a barrage of speculation from French media outlets.
Louis van Gaal didn’t do much to quell the rumours at his recent press conference, insisted the situation with Di Maria was “a process” and that he would not be saying anything more on the issue.
Di Maria joined Man United last summer for £59.7m but he struggled to adapt to life in Manchester. Settling in wasn’t made any easier when his home in Cheshire was burglarised at the start of the year. He reportedly moved his wife and kids to an apartment in the city as a result in order to ease their worries over the whole situation.
The Argentine has previously stated that he wanted to stay at United and fight for his place but with so much speculation, it appears that there is at least something to the rumours.
The only positive United fans can take from a possible transfer is that they will be able to go and purchase a world class striker in Di Maria’s place if he is sold.
United have plenty of wide midfield options and can live with the loss of Di Maria but they need a striker before the season starts if they are to score enough goals to be in with a shout for domestic honours next season.
