Angel Di Maria tipped to leave Manchester United by bookmakers

Published Add your comment

Manchester United superstar Angel Di Maria is now odds-on to leave the club for Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

The Argentine international moved to Old Trafford for £60million from Real Madrid last summer, but failed to find top form for the Red Devils following his man-of-the-match display for Los Blancos in the 4-1 Champions League final win over Atletico Madrid in 2014 - his last game for the Spanish giants.

Season of struggles

Despite glimpses of his potential during last season under Louis van Gaal, he's found himself on the bench at times and appeared to struggle with the weight of expectation placed on his shoulders by United fans.

SkyBet now thinks it's unlikely he'll represent the club again next season, with the bookmaker offering odds of 4/6 on the winger joining Paris Saint-Germain before the end of the transfer window on September 3rd.

It's 11/10 that the player remains at United, with German giants Bayern Munich next in the market at 20/1 and Serie A champions Juventus available at 25/1. Premier League rivals Manchester City are also the same price.

Ligue 1 option

That all suggests that PSG is the only real option for the 27-year-old, who scored four goals in his 32 appearances for the Red Devils last term.

"We shall see. In football, it is a process, as I have said many times before in press conferences. It's not clear in one day," Van Gaal told reporters in America during the club's pre-season tour on Wednesday.

"It's a process for Angel Di Maria, it's a process for Manchester United and we shall see.

"But, he is still a member of Manchester United and he has said to me he will come on July 25."

Final fixture?

Hardly a glowing endorsement from the Dutch tactician, but it's clear Van Gaal hasn't written off the winger just yet. After Di Maria's exploits with his country during the Copa America, he's been given a couple of weeks off before joining his teammates in the States.

Ironically, his first taste of pre-season action with the Red Devils could be against PSG on July 29 - the final game of the tour. Whether he'll be then coming home to England or making the move to France remains to be seen.
