PSG set to launch early bid for Manchester United target Angel di Maria

User Rating: / 2

Argentine international Angel di Maria has had an ordinary season with Real Madrid. The 25 year old winger was able to score only 8 goals and produce 10 assists in the whole season, a below par return by any stretch of the imagination, unforgivable if you are playing for Los Blancos. Jose Mourinho, the departing Real Madrid manager, had completely lost his trust in Di Maria as the Argentine barely produced any memorable performances all year.

It comes as no surprise then the Spanish giants are looking to offload Di Maria to raise funds for the transfer of Tottenham’s Welsh wizard Gareth Bale, a player who is likely to cost Real Madrid in excess of £60 million.


Both Manchester United and Paris St. Germain have been looking at the versatile winger from Real Madrid for their own reasons. While Manchester United has been looking at him as a possible replacement for Nani, PSG the Ligue 1 champions have been looking at him as a long term replacement for David Beckham. Manchester United and PSG aren’t afraid to spend money on him either, but PSG have supposedly stolen the march on the English champions and are ready to make a 17 million pound bid for him.

The absence of a new manager at the helm at United could cost them dearly this summer as top clubs continue to make early moves in the transfer market, and David Moyes may need to speed up his appointment date to ensure that he doesn’t lose out on the former Benfica star.
