It remains to be seen if he and the player will get their wish, but the Spanish paper are reporting a fee between the two clubs has been agreed.
Di Maria deal close
It looks like Angel di Maria's move away from Manchester United could be completed sooner rather than later, with reports suggesting the deal could be complete today.
The Argentine midfielder has been holding talks with PSG over the weekend after a €63 million fee was agreed between the two clubs.
Di Maria has been AWOL since his decision to not board a flight to join up with Manchester United's pre-season camp in the United States.
The Red Devils are already looking at replacements, with reports suggesting a deal for Barcelona midfielder Pedro could be close.
Rooney in blue
There was confusion on social media yesterday as pictures and videos surfaced of Wayne Rooney wearing an Everton kit.
Many United fans could not understand why their skipper was wearing the kit with his old number from his days at Goodison Park.
How could a transfer for such a world wide talent go through without people knowing?
Well, it didn't. Rooney played 25 minutes in Duncan Ferguson's testimonial as Everton lost 2-1 to Villareal, and he received a warm welcome from the Everton fans.
