Argentine winger Angel Di Maria who close to join French champions Paris Saint Germain, has stated why he decided to leave Old Trafford for Parc des Princes.
The 27 year old has undergone medical at Doha and the official announcement may be done anytime soon.
Angel Di Maria said that he wants to win UEFA Champions League and by joining PSG, he could achieve that.
Di Maria, 27, will cost PSG a staggering £44.3 million transfer fee and a further £56.2m in pre-tax wages over the duration of his deal.
“I am very happy to join PSG. What I know about PSG is that it is a team that won all the possible trophies in France last season,” he told BeIn Sport.
“This is very important for the club.”
“I also know that I want to overcome the obstacle that is the quarter finals of the Champions League.”
“I am going to try to bring the best of my abilities to put myself at the service of this team.”
“We are going to try and go as far as possible in the Champions League.”
Di Maria joined the Red Devils only last season from Real Madrid for British record transfer fee £59.7 million and did not have a good season despite a strong start at the Theater of Dreams.
The Argentina international played a major role for his country’s Copa America campaign, where they lost to hosts Chile in the final.
The former Real Madrid player was fined £360,000 by United last month when he failed to join the squad on their preseason tour of the USA.
Louis van Gaal, when asked about the whereabouts of the player during a press conference after United’s pre-season Barcelona, said that he does not know where his number seven is.
