Angel di Maria will snub PSG to prove his worth at Manchester United

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United star Angel di Maria plans to reject advances from Paris Saint-Germain if they come calling again this summer, because he's determined to prove his worth at Old Trafford.

Di Maria is acutely aware that his form in 2015 has been a major disappointment, with Louis van Gaal slamming his latest contribution as a substitute in the 2-1 win over Liverpool.

The £59.7 million man has struggled to justify that British record transfer fee and an enormous pay packet of £280,000-a-week, but he's not a quitter and has no plans to look for a way out of Manchester at the end of the season.

Di Maria is staying put

The Sun claims to have spoken to a source close to Di Maria, who believes there's absolutely no doubt over where his long-term future lies.

“None of this business about PSG is coming from Angel and he has no interest in going there, the source said. "It is true things have not gone as he would have liked so far, but he is determined to make it work at United.”

Van Gaal shouldn't cash in

Di Maria's struggles over the last three months have been clear for all to see, with the Argentine international's sensational lob against Leicester City back in September seeming like a lifetime ago.

Statistics show Di Maria has 10 assists in 21 Premier League games, which is far from an earth shattering return but still more than respectable.

The Di Maria which proved hugely instrumental in Real Madrid's Champions League success last season has been missing in action, but that doesn't mean United should attempt to cut their losses and sell to PSG this summer, even if they can recoup £59m.

Van Gaal is acutely aware of Di Maria's quality and should look to the long term, because United still have a quality player on their hands that has the potential to be a genuine difference maker at anything approaching his very best.
