Manchester United are losing the race with a pair Ligue 1 big-spenders to sign Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria.

Old Trafford scouts have reportedly been tracking the Argentina international for some time and the interest in him has not changed since David moyes was confirmed as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor.

Di Maria has had an indifferent season but it undoubtedly a talented player, though he has reportedly been told he can leave Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.

Manchester United are one of the teams but the latest reports suggest they may be priced out of a move as both PSG and AS Monaco are getting involved.

Portuguese press are claiming that Ligue 1 champions PSG are nearing a deal for the 25-year-old, which is expected to cost in the region of £25million.

However, the Daily Star say that newly promoted Monaco see Di Maria as the next target in their multi-million pound summer shopping spree.

The club from the principality have been spending heavily since their promotion from Ligue 2 was confirmed.

Owner Dmitry Rybolovlev is reportedly desperate to take Monaco back to the summit of European football and the Russian billionaire is ready to spend significantly in order to make it happen.
