Di Maria, 27, could leave Old Trafford after just one year spent in #Premier League. The Argentine is close to sign for Paris Saint-Germain, the Ligue 1 Champions. The midfielder arrived in England last summer after he was bought from Real Madrid for almost 75m euros. Now, according to reports in France and UK, he is on his way to Paris.
Le Parisien said that Angel Di Maria has already agreed a deal with PSG and he is going to sign a five years contract. Now the French club has to negotiate with #Manchester United for a transfer fee, but we understand that this will be between 60m and 65m euros. More than that, France #Football announced that the South-American' salary will be around 10-13m euros per season. Firstly, PSG offered him ''only'' 9.5m per year, but his agents considered that it was not enough and asked for almost three more millions.
Confirmed by Laurent Blanc!
The Paris Saint Germain's manager, Laurent Blanc, confirmed the rumours and he said that it will be a challenge for him to sign the midfielder. Di Maria seems to be the main target for the French manager this summer: ''I admire him. We have our priorities, but to strengthen such a team you must target guys who are at big clubs and who are not easy to prise away. That's hardest for PSG. Di Maria, he's good. We have more freedom, but it remains a difficult project for us because we are not alone in wanting him and don't forget that Manchester United paid a fortune to sign him.''
More than that, Blanc also commented the situation of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, clarifying that there were no doubts about his staying at the club, after reports suggested that he wanted to leave for Premier League football.
Angel Di Maria played 27 games for Manchester United last season in Premier League, scoring only three goals, being considered a flop by many fans, but the Argentine was injured a good part of the last campaign. He is a regular player in the Argentina starting line-up, ticking no fewer than 66 caps so far and scoring 15 goals. Di Maria would be the second midfielder that leaves the club this summer after Tom Cleverley who joined Everton on July 1st.
