Angel di Maria is interested in Paris Saint-Germain transfer

Published Add your comment

Angel di Maria is open to the idea of joining Paris Saint-Germain this summer according to reports in France.

The Argentinian winger joined Manchester United in a club record £59.7 million transfer last year, but after a quick start he faltered badly and eventually lost his place in the first team to Ashley Young.

The former Real Madrid man managed just three Premier League goals all season - the last of which came in the 2-1 win over Everton back in October.

Di Maria was close to completing a move to Paris Saint-Germain before they were forced to pull out because of restrictions under UEFA's Financial Fair Play directives - however they have now been all but lifted meaning the French champions are free to splash the cash.

That has prompted rumours of a move for Cristiano Ronaldo, however according to French outlet RMC, Di Maria remains their top target for the summer.

They add that PSG are gearing up to make an offer of €60 million for the Argentine's services, and that the player is open to a move.

Di Maria has previously admitted he could have easily been a PSG player before opting to join Manchester United, and said he could play in France in the future.


PSG, I think they had a money problem and they couldn't buy players," the Argentine said in an interview with Telefoot. "This is the main reason I didn't go there. Playing in the French league would please a lot of players.

"Now I'm in the English league. But you never know, there is a lot of movement in football. You can never predict where you're going to play. There were a lot of clubs interested in me. A lot, really. But Manchester United appeared and didn't go away. They absolutely wanted me and it happened."


Manchester United would be foolish to let Di Maria go this summer. Sure, he didn't do brilliantly in his first campaign at Old Trafford but he did end up with 10 assists, putting him third in the entire league.

Even if they didn't have faith in his performances - which appear to be on the up judging by Argentina's march to the Copa America final - they would stand to lose too much face and money if the let him go now.

How much would it take to convince Manchester United to sell up to PSG?
