It was expected the deal between United and PSG would be completed yesterday, however following his rest and recuperation, Di Maria is now expected to complete his medical today before flying to Paris to sign a four-year deal.

The £44m deal agreed for the services of Di Maria will see the Red Devils take a hit on the £59.7m they paid for his services last summer.

Manager Louis van Gaal has recently admitted that signing the Argentine midfielder was a mistake in the first place, saying there was no guarantee he would fit into the Dutch managers philosophy. 

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand has also said the 27-year-old will regret being a failure at Old Trafford, and should have stayed to rectify the problems of his solitary season. 

The former Real Madrid man started life in Manchester with a bang, scoring three goal in his first five league games, however problems on and off the field led to a decline in form. His only other goal for the Red Devils came in a cup win against then League One side Yeovil Town.

With the news coming in that Di Maria was unable to partake in a medical following his flight from Argentina, Manchester United fans took to twitter to voice their opinion.
