Arsenal, meanwhile, are the just behind United and PSG as the third favourites to sign the superstar from Real Madrid. The Gunners and Manchester United have both been credited with interest in the £40 million rated winger, who played a key role in Real's Champions League winning campaign last term.

Van Gaal

Manchester United look set to enter another new era under Dutchman Louis van Gaal, and the signing of Di Maria could prove a major coup for the Red Devils boss. United have already splashed the cash this summer, having purchased Southampton youngster Luke Shaw and Spanish ace Ander Herrera.

Di Maria would certainly improve United's options out wide after a number of their wingers struggled for form last term. The likes of Ashley Young, Nani and Antonio Valencia all failed to impress, whilst youngster Wilfried Zaha was shipped out on loan.

Marquee signing

Di Maria would certainly represent a marquee signing for either of Manchester United or Arsenal, but it remains to be seen as to whether the English clubs battle for Argentine in the near future.

The Madrid superstar certainly isn't short of admirers, and could yet arrive in England's elite division before the start of the 2014/15 campaign.
