Real Madrid midfielder Angel di Maria could be close to completing a move to Manchester United, after negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain have not come to a good end.
Reports in France have revealed that the French club cannot afford to buy the Argentinian, since they have been hampered by UEFA sanctions over a breach of Financial Fair Play.
Moreover, PSG’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi admitted during David Luiz unveiling that “Di Maria’s transfer is too expensive.”
Thus, Manchester United have received a boost in their pursuit for Di Maria. The Red Devils have been the 26-year-old all summer and now it could be time to start negotiations with Real.
The Daily Express has claimed the Premier League side have already been in talks with Di Maria’s agent Jorge Mendes, and they have offered him an eight-million-euros salary.
However, Di Maria could be now considering staying in Madrid, according to reports in Spain.
Carlo Ancelotti wants him to stay, and he is prepared to show his faith in Di Maria by starting him in the UEFA Super Cup final against Sevilla next Tuesday.
Louis van Gaal is a massive fan of the player and will also try to convince him.
With Los Merengues having already spent 120 million euros on Toni Kroos, James Rodriguez and Keylor Navas, Florentino Perez might chose to sell Di Maria, but United will have to bid high to meet his expectations.
