The Sun report however, that the former United defender does not believe that his side are the only ones chasing the Argentinian’s signature.
“Di Maria, he’s good. We have more freedom, but it remains a difficult project for us because we’re not alone in wanting him,” he explained.
However, he seemed to hint some doubt in the player, after he suggested that the £59.7m the Red Devils paid for him last summer (via The Sun) may have been a large overpayment.
“Competition is very, very tough. Don’t forget, Manchester United paid a fortune to sign him,” he added.
Although he made a promising start to life in the Premier League, his form quickly tailed off. Despite scoring a delicious goal against Leicester in one of his first appearances for the club, his defining moment of the season during a FA Cup tie against Arsenal.
The winger was sent off for two yellow cards, the second of which came after he grabbed the shirt of the referee. The embarrassment saw the player leave the field with his head in his hands.
It now appears that his days in the Premier League could be numbered.
