Real Madrid star Angel Di Maria wants to join Manchester United in this transfer window despite interest from French moneybags Paris Saint-Germain.
This has been reported by the Express, who have suggested that the Argentine winger wants to join the Old Trafford outfit, with the report suggesting that Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is prepared to meet the asking price for the player.
The report has suggested that Di Maria is worth around £50 million, and Van Gaal is prepared to offer him a lucrative deal to sign for the club. The Argentine ace could, then, become Manchester United's most expensive ever player if the Red Devils pull off the deal.
Di Maria's stint at the Bernabeu appears to be over after the Spanish giants landed James Rodriguez earlier this summer. The Argentine failed to make an appearance this past week as Real claimed the European Super Cup with a 2-0 win over Sevilla.
Red Devils fans will certainly be excited by the prospect of the winger signing for the club, with Van Gaal in need of a marquee signing. It may come as a surprise to some that Di Maria has opted for United over PSG, as the Red Devils won't be involved in the Champions League next season. But, under Van Gaal, there is a new lease of life at Old Trafford, and United fans will now be hoping Di Maria makes the big money move to the club.
The potential signing of Di Maria would give Van Gaal yet another option in attack for the up coming Premier League season. The Dutch coach already has an array of talent to work with at the Theatre of Dreams, but Di Maria would only improve the squad further.
With Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata already at Old Trafford, Van Gaal's attacking line is shaping up nicely. If Di Maria is signed, then it remains to be seen as to where he would fit in at United, but Van Gaal would certainly be looking to find a space for him alongside Rooney, Mata and Co.
