Angel di Maria to snub Manchester United transfer

Football News

Angel di Maria will snub a move to Manchester United this summer because they are unable to offer him Champions League football next season.

The Argentinian is expected to be on the move this summer, with Real Madrid looking to sell up in order to make room for James Rodriguez from Monaco. The reigning European champions are believed to be holding out for around £40 million for him. 

Bidding war

That has sparked something of a bidding war between Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain along with Chelsea, who are both said to be in the race for his services.

However Manchester United have seemingly suffered a huge setback in the race for his signature according to the Express, who claim he'll turn down a move to Old Trafford because they are unable to offer Champions League football next term.

Trouble at Manchester United

Under David Moyes, the Red Devils stumbled to 7th place in the Premier League - their lowest finish since its inception in 1992. He was inevitably relieved of his duties just 10 months after he was appointed, and Manchester United will hope that the presence of Louis van Gaal, who will take over after the World Cup, can convince him to buy into the new project.


If he doesn't however it could open the door to PSG or even Chelsea to pounce and tie down the winger. 

Whatever his future, Di Maria will be full focussed on the World Cup for the time being. He is expected to take to the field in the final for Argentina against Germany if he can shake off the injury that kept him from his country's semi-final win over Holland earlier this week.
