Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho wants to block any move from former side Chelsea for winger Angel di Maria, according to The
The 23 year old winger is discontented with his current £1.65m a year salary at the Santiago Bernabeu and wants a pay rise. Di Maria signed for Madrid in 2010 for £25m and has impressed for Mourinho’s men, but the Argentinian is struggling to agree a new deal.
Chelsea are big fans of the Argentinian and are looking to sign Di Maria for £38m, a deal that Real claim has been proposed. Mourinho is unhappy with Andre Villas-Boas’ attempts to sign his winger and wants to stop any move before it materialises. Di Maria’s head has reportedly been turned with the offer from the Blues and has asked to speak with Chelsea in sight of a move to West London.
The Blues face competition from Manchester United to sign Di Maria, but Villas-Boas believes that if his offer is accepted, Di Maria will come to West London. Mourinho may be reluctant to sell Di Maria, but the chance to make a £13m profit on the 23 year old is not to be refused. United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has tried to sign Di Maria before, when the winger was at Benfica, and will look to make another move if Di Maria is up for sale.
