Carlo Ancelotti admits Angel di Maria could leave Real Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that he is unaware as to whether or not Angel di Maria will still be a Real Madrid player when the transfer window closes.

The Argentinian has been linked with Manchester United and PSG this summer with the former reportedly ready to offer a £100 million package including a £50 million transfer fee and £200,000-a-week in wages to secure his signature.

In the dark

The offer, believed to have been extended towards Di Maria by Manchester United officials has left the Real Madrid boss in the dark in regards to the player's future. Ancelotti admits Di Maria remains a Real Madrid player for the moment, but is prepared to plan for life without him.

"I'm not entering into the issue about Di Maria, because I'll lose focus on the game [against Atletico Madrid],” Ancelotti told reporters on Monday.

“I do not know what he has decided, I just know that he is ready to play, and until August 31 he will be here in principle. If from there he stays or is no longer here, we will think about it later.”

The £100m offer

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal told vice-chairman Ed Woodward to do all he can to bring Di Maria to Old Trafford before the window closes. That was in response to the disastrous 2-1 defeat to Swansea on Saturday afternoon.

Di Maria has been told he will earn a massive £200,000-a-week including performance related incentives and Manchester United will meet Real Madrid's £50 million asking price.

PSG interest

Luckily for Manchester United, Uefa's Financial Fair Play regulations have prevented PSG from signing the 26-year-old. Di Maria was seen as a marquee signing for Laurent Blanc, but after their £50 million acquisition of David Luiz, they could not afford to bring Di Maria to Parc des Princes.

That has left Manchester United with a free run as there seems to be no other suitors for the formidable winger. Real Madrid have told Di Maria that he will have to leave as James Rodriguez has been earmarked for his place in the team and funds need to be raised.

Old Trafford bound?

Needless to say, a move to Manchester United is looking inevitable for Di Maria. The Red Devils need a marquee signing to appease the Old Trafford masses and have the funds needed to convince a world star to join.
