Manchester United have reportedly been told by Real Madrid they are wasting their time in pursuit of Angel di Maria.

The Argentine winger is currently locked in a contract dispute with his employers and, it has been claimed, this situation has alerted the Barclays Premier League champions.

But, according to the Daily Mail, Real have informed United they have no chance of signing di Maria, and Jose Mourinho expects a contract compromise to be reached.

It was initially reported on Tuesday that Sir Alex Ferguson was keeping a close eye on di Maria's situation at the Santiago Bernabeu, having previously been keen to bring him to Old Trafford.

United were credited with interest in the 23-year-old prior to his €25 million switch from Benfica to Real in the summer of 2010.

Di Maria played a starring role during his firs season in Madrid; scoring 11 times in 46 appearances for Los Blancos.

And, it would seem, Mourinho has no intention of losing the youngster - and United may now have to switch their attention elsewhere in the quest for reinforcements.

United have also been linked with January bids for Milos Krasic and Ricky van Wolfswinkel as Ferguson considers bolstering his ranks.
