David Luiz thinks Angel di Maria is a very good player

Paris Saint-Germain defender David Luiz has hailed Manchester United midfielder Angel di Maria as a 'very good player', insisting that it would be great if the Argentine wanted to join the club this summer. 

Di Maria, of course, endured a tricky debut campaign on English soil, failing to establish himself a as regular under Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal. 

Despite a strong opening couple of months to his stint in Manchester, the former Real Madrid man failed to produce the goods and struggled with confidence, as he found himself on the bench in latter stages of the campaign. 

It appears, then, that he could now leave Manchester behind, with reports suggesting that a move to French moneybags PSG is possible. 

And Luiz, who left English soil behind last summer, would certainly be pleased if the versatile Argentine moved to the club in the near future. 

Luiz speaks out 

As reported by the Daily Star, speaking to French television programme Telefoot, the flamboyant Brazilian stated: "If Di Maria wants to join PSG, that would be great. He is a very good player."

It's far from certain, however, as to whether PSG will press ahead with a move for the Argentine in the near future, as they go about improving ahead of the 2015/16 campaign. 

One thing's for sure, after United splashed out a club record fee to take him from Real one year ago, he won't come cheap, and the Red Devils hierarchy may well look to give him another season to settle to life in the Premier League. 

Keep him 

And, in truth, United should look to keep him on in Manchester. Ok, so his first season was one to forget, but he showed glimpses, especially in the opening month or two, of exactly what he has to offer, and he could yet become a leader player for the Red Devils as they go about maintaining a Premier League title challenge next season.

At the end of the day, despite his struggles, Di Maria is still a world-class player, and will only improve as he continues to settle in England's elite division. 

One thing's for sure, if Van Gaal can provide an added balance to his side this summer and find a permanent position for Di Maria in his team, then the Argentine can produce the goods sooner rather than later. There's no way the United hierarchy should give up on him just yet; he may well surprise one or two in 2015/16.
