Manchester United midfielder Angel di Maria is set to have a medical with French giants Paris Saint-Germain on Monday ahead of a huge move to the Parc des Princes.

This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the Argentine international has already agreed a five-year deal with the club, as he goes about getting his career back on track after a nightmare stint on English soil.

Di Maria, of course, failed to make an impact at Old Trafford after completing a British record move to the club last summer, so it's not entirely surprising that he looks set to move on sooner rather than later.

In truth, though, it could have been different for the Argentine international, who actually made an impressive start to life in Manchester last time round. 

Now the United No.7 looks set to move on in the immediate future, despite the Red Devils hierarchy having rejected PSG's initial approach of £29 million for the player's services.

With Di Maria seemingly intent on moving to Ligue 1, it's now up to PSG officials to agree a deal with Manchester United for the player ahead of Monday's potential medical. 


But who should replace Di Maria in Manchester? 

Of course, some will point to Memphis Depay, who has already moved to the Theatre of Dreams, but perhaps another huge name should arrive at the club before the start of the new season. 

And that surely has to be Barcelona ace Pedro, who has been heavily linked with a move to England of later. 

There's no doubt about it, the Spanish international, who has failed to hold down a regular place at the La Liga giants under Luis Enrique, is in need of a new challenge, and he would no doubt flourish under the Louis van Gaal regime. 

Pedro would most definitely suit Van Gaal's philosophy and would bring a great deal of creativity and class with him from the Nou Camp. 

At £22m, too, the Barcelona man would no doubt prove a bargain for Manchester United, who may well be better off without Di Maria, which is a big shame. Ultimately, it appears that he didn't fancy fighting for his future at the Red Devils, so the United hierarchy are right to move him on and bring in a player ready to prove his credentials.
