Manchester United flop Angel Di Maria looks set to leave Old Trafford this summer, as a move to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain edges nearer.
Manchester United Transfer News
According to the Metro, the Argentinian winger handed in a transfer request last week, and is now in advanced talks with Laurent Blanc’s side.
The potential transfer would come less than a year after the 27-year-old moved to the Premier League as one of the best players in the world. The Metro report that United paid Real Madrid £59.7m for the man that had just starred at last year’s World Cup, helping his country reach the final, and arguably overshadowed the performances of Lionel Messi in the process.
And it appeared that he may be on his way to becoming the latest in the long line of excellent wingers to have played for the club when he scored three times in his first five games. His delicious chip against Leicester – albeit in a losing cause – was certainly a contender for goal of the season.
However, since then, he has struggled to find any kind of form, and only has one goal to speak of – against Yeovil Town in the FA Cup. The low point of his time came in a later round of the same competition, when he picked up a ridiculous red card during the home defeat to Arsenal. His dismissal came after grabbing hold of the referee’s shirt.
