Arsenal prepare bid for United winger target

Arsenal are set to launch a big-money bid for Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria, according to reports.

Metro claims Gunners chief Arsene Wenger will offer £25.8million for the Argentine international, as Gareth Bale prepares to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Welshman's arrival in the Spanish capital could leave Di Maria surplus to requirements, and whilst the club played down speculation regarding the player's possible exit, his future is far from certain.

Wenger has failed to make significant additions to his Arsenal side this summer, with several big-names linked but not signed.

Indeed, Yaya Sanogo is the only new senior player in the first-team squad at the Emirates Stadium, with names like Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez failing to come to fruition.

Di Maria would certainly be a marquee name to please the fans, whilst French international Karim Benzema has also been linked with a move to Arsenal.

The Frenchman was linked with Manchester United years ago when Sir Alex Ferguson was at the club's helm, and new boss David Moyes is now being linked with the other target - Di Maria.

Moyes has also failed to make big-name signings this summer, with the Red Devils missing out on the likes Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara.

The Premier League champions currently appear to be behind their north London rivals in the race for this particular player, but Manchester United have the money and could try and lure Di Maria to Old Trafford if they wish to pursue the signature.
