Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has indicated that Angel di Maria’s move to Paris Saint-Germain will be confirmed in the coming hours.
Balague also claimed that Di Maria’s potential replacement at Old Trafford, Pedro, has agreed terms at Manchester United but that they are yet to make a concrete offer.
Di Maria completed a medical with PSG this week but it appears he is still finalising the details of the move.
Pedro will likely be confirmed as a Man United player once Di Maria’s transfer officially goes through.
Di Maria's departure to be confirmed in the next few hours (£44.2m agreed 29th July). MUFC and Pedro agreed terms but no offer to FCB… yet

Di Maria has handled his exit from Old Trafford terribly, with the player going AWOL after failing to board a plane to United’s pre-season tour last month.
The hope is that Pedro, who is leaving Barcelona due to a lack of first-team opportunities, will have a much better attitude.
He should suit United far better than Di Maria on the pitch. Having played with Barcelona for so many years, he will be able to pick up Louis van Gaal’s possession based style of play quickly and with a minimum of fuss.
