Angel di Maria, Manchester United's most expensive signing, is reported to have told a friend at Real Madrid that he regrets moving to Old Trafford.
This supposed information comes from AS journalist Manuel ‘Manolete’ Esteban who, talking to Spanish TV show La Goleada, claimed that: "Di Maria has confessed to someone at Real Madrid that he regrets joining Manchester United."
Since Manolete failed to clarify his source, whether Di Maria did so or not remains a question to be answered.
Yet if we judge Di Maria's performance since his £59.7 million move from Real Madrid last summer, it would seem that perhaps there is some truth to the suggestion that he is not enjoying life in Manchester.
Despite a relatively glittering start in United shirt, things have not quite gone to plan for Di Maria. During his first six months in England, the Argentinean has only shown some flashes of the wonderful form he was able to demonstrate last season.

Di Maria's current form is alarmingly low, with just two assists and one goal since November 22. The 27-year-old midfielder seems to have lost his spark having been used in too many positions by Louis van Gaal, has failed to make the most of Di Maria's talent.
If United fail to achieve a top four finish, then Di Maria may really come to regret his transfer to Old Trafford from the Santiago Bernabeu.
