Manchester United recycles Di Maria shirt and it's amazing

Published 4 Comments

Angel di Maria has finally completed his move away from Manchester United to Paris Saint-Germain, and it leaves some fans facing something of a dilemma. 

The Argentinian is the Red Devils' most expensive player of all time and, understandably, there was a rush amongst fans to but a Manchester United kit bearing his name.

However things didn't exactly go to plan and after a poor season in which he managed just three goals in the Premier League he has left Old Trafford for Paris at a loss of around £15 million to the Premier League giants.

It's not just Manchester United who've lost money though it; fans who paid in excess of £60 for a Di Maria shirt at the start of last season are also out of pocket.

Fear not though, because one inventive supporter has come up with an ingenious solution to the problem.

A picture emerged on the web last night of a Manchester United supporter who had simply crossed out 'Di' and the 'R' in Di Maria's name and altered the 'I' to look like a 'T' using tape and hey presto, she now is the proud owner of a Juan Mata shirt.

Don't believe us? Well just check out the image below: 

Since his departure from Old Trafford, Di Maria has written a letter to Manchester United fans, apologising to them for his shirt stay and subsequent departure. 


He wrote: "I'm aware things didn't work as we all expected and believe me, I feel really sorry about it. However in the career of a football player sometimes the unexpected and unwanted may happen.

"I can guarantee you it was not for trying. I did my best but football is not like maths: often a lot of things out of our control affect the way we feel and the way things turn out. I am sorry it did not work out as I would have wished in this amazing huge club."
