Real Madrid's Angel Di Maria, has hinted he will be leaving the Santiago Bernabeu this summer after reports from Spain's AS have suggested that the Argentine star is feeling undervalued by the Madrid giants.

Di Maria, previously insisted that he is completely oblivious to the rumours linking him with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu, and that his prime focus for the next few weeks is to help his country win their first World Cup since 1986.

Ancelotti will listen to offers

However Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that although he is more than happy with Fabio Coentrao, Sami Khedira and Angel Di Maria, he will listen to sizeable offers for the trio in order to bring a little liquidity to the club, a clear indication that Di Maria is surprisingly not really wanted by the club.

The Argentine, who joined Los Blancos in 2010, enjoyed one of his best years with the club last  season, and it seems unimaginable that Ancelotti would want to see the back of the attacking winger, however €50 million appears to be a sum too good for Real to turn down.

Interest

Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, Juventus, Monaco and PSG are reportedly all interested in the player despite the valuation.

Monaco certainly have the money and Champions League football but they also have James Rodriguez while PSG could meet the financial commitments if the player decided on plying his trade in France.

Juventus certainly won't have the funds unless they can offload Arturo Vidal, while a move to the Premiership looks the most likely.

Louis Van Gaal is heavily backed in the transfer window and is on the lookout for a left-wing, considering there is no better out there, Di Maria could very well be his man.

Manchester City would love to steal the player from under the noses of their rivals, while Arsenal have been enquiring about the player for some time.

Distraction

With Argentina still involved in the Brazilian showpiece the player had previously dismissed all speculation.

Four years ago in South Africa, there was similar speculation surrounding his future in a move to Real Madrid from Benfica which he found a distraction.

Di Maria insisted he didn't want the same to occur this time around in Brazil: "I was disappointed after South Africa. I couldn't perform as well as I wanted. I don't want the same to happen in this World Cup. I want to get my head down and give my best for my team"

"I've asked my agent not to tell me anything about the talks he's having. I don't know what's going to happen with my career. I don't want to know anything about my future right now. I'm focusing on my national team and not on what's going on elsewhere", the player said.

"My teammates and I don't read or listen to all the things being said in the media. We're just thinking about ourselves and the unity of the group", Di Maria stressed.

Wherever he ends up this is the quality he will offer!

These comments were in actual fact made during the group stages, and it appears Carlo Ancelotti's comments about listening to sizeable offers for the winger have reached him in Brazil, leaving him with little choice but to start considering a new life away from Real.
