Manchester United have reportedly been offered the opportunity to sign Angel di Maria from Real Madrid, while the Premier League leaders have seemingly also been handed a boost in their apparent pursuit of Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to The Mirror, Di Maria is being touted around to some of the most prominent club's in Europe, and Manchester United are one of the sides to have been approached by the agents of the Real Madrid winger.
Di Maria's form this season has suffered in a Real Madrid side low on confidence domestically given their inability to defend the Spanish league title they snatched from Barcelona in record breaking style last term.
The representatives of the 25-year-old Argentina international are now reported to be sounding out potential interest in Di Maria before he is prepared to commit his future to Real Madrid, and a transfer to Manchester United could seemingly be a possibility.
El Pais suggests Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has finally grown tired of Ronaldo's failure to extend his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu, and are prepared to cash-in at the end of the season.
Ronaldo has frequently been linked with a transfer back to Old Trafford, while Sir Alex Ferguson has voiced his desire to bring the 28-year-old Portugal captain back to Manchester one day.
