In the most telling source till date, it has been reported by L’Equipe that former Real Madrid man Angel Di Maria is open to leaving Manchester United next season. L’Equipe is a famous and most trusted French football publication which is followed blindly by their followers.
French media has been growing confident of seeing Di Maria playing in Ligue 1 next season with PSG looming large over Di Maria’s mind. It has been a awful start for the Argentine since his move from the Spanish capital earlier in the summer.
A daylight robbery at his home and not been able to settle to United’s midfield has been the reason why it is speculated that Di Maria will call it time on his Man United career.
A summer move for Di Maria is widely viewed in the region of 30 million with British media claiming that Manchester United would want to add Edinson Cavani to the deal and a 30 million + Edinson Cavani would tempt Louis Van Gaal to let go off Di Maria.
Van Gaal earlier in the month did make a bold claim by saying that United will not stand in Di Maria’s way if he wants to leave in the summer. Such comments do signal towards an exit in the summer for the former Champions League winner.
Manchester United would look to play their cards very carefully as letting someone like Di Maria leave must be compensated with a big-name signing to avoid fan’s backlash.
Players like Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Marco Reus will always be gossiped by the United fans so it is up to Van Gaal and Ed Woodward to decide the budget of their summer shopping spree and who all should be targetted to get rid of Di Maria’s departure woes.
