Angel Di Maria only has to ask for United exit - reports

Published Add your comment

Angel Di Maria could be set for a summer departure from Manchester United, should the player want to make the move away from Old Trafford.

Reports in The Independent this morning suggest that United would only consider selling if Di Maria personally asks for a transfer. 

Di Maria has had a problematic first year in England, both on and off the field. Following an attempted break in at his family home in January, his form and confidence has suffered significantly, scoring just once in 2015- against Yeovil in the FA Cup.

French champions PSG have long been linked with a move for Di Maria, having been interested in him prior to his departure from Real Madrid. 

Having signed for a British transfer record fee of £59.7 million last summer, United would be keen to recoup most of that money should a move materialise, and PSG are one of the few European clubs in a position to launch such a bid.

Should Di Maria look to leave Manchester he could spark a player clear out from manager Louis van Gaal. With Radamel Falacao having already returned to Monaco following his season-long loan, others including: Robin van Persie, Nani and Jonny Evans could also be on the move. 

Having qualified for a Champions League play-off place, van Gaal has already moved quickly to ensure the signing of Memphis Depay and is keen to add new faces to his squad to mount strong domestic and European challenge next season.
