Manchester City are reported to be considering a move for Manchester United attacker Angel di Maria, who only arrived at Old Trafford last summer in a British record transfer deal.

This information comes from Duncan Castles in the Sunday Times who claims City director of football Txiki Begiristain has ‘held discussions’ regarding an approach for Di Maria, although it is unclear with whom these talks are supposed to have taken place.

It would be difficult to fathom United considering selling Di Maria, who cost £58.7 million last August, but this link to City seems to suggest there has been some encouragement, perhaps from the player’s camp.

Di Maria has certainly not provided the type of impact United had hoped for but it would still seem rather unlikely that Louis van Gaal would sanction his departure after just only one season with the club.

The 27-year-old has struggled with both injury and consistency this term but has still managed to register 10 Premier League assists, and provided the cross for Wayne Rooney to score in the weekend victory over Aston Villa.

Di Maria has been able to start only 19 of his side’s 31 league fixtures and that is far from enough to offer an ultimate assessment on his contribution. There has, however, been more concern over Di Maria’s off-field problems than those on it.

The Argentina international’s home was burgled shortly after he joined the club and that left a significant psychological mark. And if he does look to pursue a move away for this reason, then it will certainly not be to another side in Manchester.

Does Angel di Maria have a future at Manchester United? Let us know below!
