Reports in Spanish media outlet ABC are claiming that Angel di Maria is regretting his move to Manchester United last summer and has apparently begged Real Madrid to take him back.
The Argentine international is apparently trying to engineer a swift exit from Old Trafford this summer, with Paris Saint Germain being tipped as his most likely destination.
The ABC report suggests that he is struggling to come to terms with the drab Manchester weather, highlighting the ‘cold, cloudy climate, with no sun after 4pm from October to March’.
And he is now said to genuinely regret his decision to leave for the Red Devils, which ABC remind the reader was put through out of spite as Florentino Perez didn’t take too kindly to his increased salary demands.
Di Maria’s current salary is only marginally better at United, where he earns an extra €200,000 a year, and realising what an error he has made he has now apparently formally asked the Spanish giants to take him back.
However, Real have no intention of taking him back, meaning he will have to press ahead with the move to PSG if he desperately wants to escape.
