Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been forced to admit that he doesn’t know where the club’s record signing Angel Di Maria is right now, the Metro reports.
The Argentine international had been granted extra time off following his executions with his country at the Copa America, and had been due to link up with the rest of his United teammates in San Jose on their US tour at the weekend.
However, with talk over a possible deal to take him to French side Paris Saint Germain in the coming weeks (via Sky Sports) the 27-year-old failed to show up in California, and now van Gaal has no idea where he is.
Facing journalists after the club’s 2-0 defeat to the French giants on Wednesday night, the Dutchman said:
“I don’t know where he is,” he said.
“You can ask it every week, but I don’t answer that question. Maybe you know? I don’t know.”
Di Maria joined the Red Devils last summer in a British record £59.7m deal from Real Madrid (via BBC) but the Metro claim that van Gaal is happy to cut his losses and sell to PSG for £46m.
