Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has promised midfielder Angel di Maria that he will start more games next season.

This has been claimed by Spanish football expert Graham Hunter, who suggests that the former Real Madrid man has been asked to stay at Old Trafford by the club's manager.

Di Maria, of course, endured a tricky debut campaign on English soil as he failed to cement his place in the starting XI under the Dutch regime.

Despite a fine start to the 2014/15 season, the player's form dipped as the campaign went on, which has led to uncertainty over his long term future in the game.

In fact, of late, French moneybags PSG have been linked with the player's signature, but Hunter has insisted that United want him to stay, while he's also revealed that Edinson Cavani, who could be heading in the opposite direction, 'demanded' to be a regular starter the last time the Red Devils attempted to buy him. 

Huge season ahead

The future of Di Maria will no doubt split opinion, with many questioning his commitment to the cause in England.

But perhaps the talented Argentine should stay on in Manchester and prove his critics wrong. Ultimately, the ex-Real Madrid man clearly has the talent, so there's no reason why he can't kick on at Old Trafford and prove his credentials in the Premier League. 

Van Gaal, too, must play a huge role in helping Di Maria rediscover his best form. It's crucial the United chief hands him a permanent position in his side, and puts his full confidence in the midfielder sooner rather than later.
