Angel di Maria isn't have the best of seasons with Manchester United, but it certainly seems as though he's enjoying his time off the pitch.

The former Real Madrid ace has managed just four goals in the Premier League following his £59.7 million move from Spain. 

Reports

There have been reports that he's looking to secure a move away from Old Trafford in the summer after his house in Manchester was targeted by thieves, with Paris Saint-Germain believed to be his preferred destination.

However he didn't seem to have a care in the world when a secret surprise party was thrown for him in a hotel room by his family. Di Maria was visibly moved after being greeted by friends and family from Argentina, and the Manchester United ace is delighted to greet each of them after entering the room.

Surprise

Before the surprise, Di Maria seemingly put questions to bed about his future at Manchester United by getting the number seven - his shirt number previously worn by the likes of David Beckham and George Best.

Both Di Maria's agent and boss Louis van Gaal have publicly insisted that he is happy to remain at Old Trafford for the foreseeable future. Despite that the former Real Madrid ace will have to fight in order to regain his first team place having not started a Premier League game since the start the March.

Spectator

He was a spectator as Manchester United took on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge over the weekend, and although he came on as a late substitute he could do little as the Red Devils fell to a 1-0 defeat.

Despite his absence Manchester United appear to have found their best form at the right time, picking up key wins against Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester City to take them up to third place. 

Just one point separates them from Manchester City in fourth with five games remaining.

Opinion

There's been plenty of good press surrounding Di Maria of late, his team appear to be on a charm offensive.

It seems more likely than ever that he'll stay at Manchester United for at least one more season so he can start to repay some of the money that was forked out for him.

How much would Angel di Maria cost to buy in the summer?
