Paris Saint-Germain are gearing up to make another move for Angel di Maria in the next transfer window according to reports.
The Argentine international joined Manchester United over the summer for a British record fee of £57.9 million but after a lightning start has faded of late.
He scored three goals in his first five games for the Red Devils but has managed just one strike in his subsequent 15 outings.
PSG were close to landing Di Maria before he moved to join Manchester United but couldn't afford him because of Financial Fair Play restrictions handed down by UEFA, but it seems they are back in for him now.
According to the Mail, the reigning French champions have set their sights on Di Maria once more having missed out on Eden Hazard, who penned a new long-term contract with Chelsea this week.

The paper say that he has failed to settle into the Manchester United team under boss Louis van Gaal, which could open the door for PSG to swoop. Previously Di Maria has confirmed that he would have been keen on a switch to the Parc des Prince before the Red Devils came calling.
"PSG, I think they had a money problem and they couldn’t buy players,' the former Real Madrid man said in an interview with French broadcaster Telefoot in November. 'This is the main reason I didn’t go there. Playing in the French league would please a lot of players.
'Now I’m in the English league. But you never know, there is a lot of movements in football. You can never predict where you’re going to play.
'There were a lot of clubs interested in me. A lot really. But Manchester United appeared and didn’t go away. They absolutely wanted me and it happened.”
