Di Maria said of his move: "I am very proud, and can't wait, to wear the colours of Paris Saint-Germain.

“I want to win every competition we enter, both in France and Europe. I want to win the Champions League, which is a dream for all footballers, for a second time.

"We will do everything we can to bring Europe's biggest trophy to France and the fans of Paris Saint-Germain."

The powers that be

Meanwhile, PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi said: "We are very proud that Angel Di Maria has chosen Paris Saint-Germain.

"He is an incredibly talented player, with a frightening speed and ability to beat opposition players. He adds his name to the club's strong South American community and, above all, the big Paris Saint-Germain family.

"By signing Angel Di Maria, Paris Saint-Germain is once again showing the club's constant ambition to reach the summits of the European game."

The former Real Madrid player made a bright start to his United career, with a goal and an assist in three of his first four games.

However, after an attempted break-in at his home reports started surfacing claiming that he was unsettled at Old Trafford.

He then got sent-off in the FA Cup loss to Arsenal at home, which resulted in him starting one game for the rest of the season, that being the last fixture against Hull City away, where he was substituted in the first-half having picked up a hamstring injury.
