Angel di Maria’s time at Manchester United is up because he has failed to settle in Manchester according to Telegraph journalist Mark Ogden.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Ogden said the Argentine didn’t get on with Louis van Gaal either, and he will be sold to PSG with Barcelona’s Pedro taking his place.

Di Maria is said to be close to joining Paris Saint-Germain as part of a €65 million deal, and he could even be on the opposing team when Manchester United play the French giants in a pre-season friendly on July 30.

He said: "I don't think he is going to stay at United. I think they will get the deal done and then make a move for Pedro.

"The suggestion with Di Maria is his wife is really unhappy in Manchester and also he just doesn't buy into Van Gaal's philosophy. Managers and players have to connect and I don't think Di Maria and Van Gaal have hit it off."

Di Maria managed just three goals in the Premier League last season following his club record move to Manchester United, however his form plummeted after his family house in Manchester was targeted by thieves in January.

Muller open to Manchester United switch

Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller is ready to consider a move to Manchester United should the two clubs agree a fee, according to the Guardian.

The German has reportedly been the subject of a £70 million bid as the Red Devils look for a new striker.

Such an offer would be enough to make Muller the most expensive player in British football history and would match the figure–in Euros, but not in pounds–that Real Madrid paid for Gareth Bale in 2013.

Benitez insists Sergio Ramos isn't for sale

Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez has ruled out the possibility of selling defender Sergio Ramos during the current transfer window.

“Sergio Ramos is our player and he is a key player for us. I would like to see him at the beginning of the season playing for us. I think he will be crucial for us during the season. I am 100 percent. I insist it’s clear for me and for the club that Sergio will be here. I have a lot of respect for Louis van Gaal and football is a curious world, but Sergio Ramos will stay with us.”

Do you think Di Maria is Man Utd's biggest transfer mistake?
