Manchester United have become increasingly worried about Angel Di Maria’s participation in the ongoing Copa America. This comes after Di Maria’s international teammate and superstar Lionel Messi has urged Barcelona to make a bid for the Argentine.
Messi has been really impressed with Di Maria’s performances in the Copa America and sees him as the ideal fit for Barcelona next season. Di Maria struggled to adapt to Premier League after making switch from La Liga.
Messi believes, Di Maria can regain his confidence if he moves back to the La Liga. This has got Manchester United hierarchy very worried and are fearing to lose their £59.7million superstar this summer.
Di Maria, however has assured United fans of his long-term stay at Old Trafford. Di Maria was speaking to Manchester Evening News earlier in the week where he once again accepted a struggling first season in England but promised to be a rich part of United’s history and success.
Di Maria also brought to Van Gaal’s attention how the winger has not been getting enough playing time under the Dutchman. Di Maria was quick to suggest that he is happy to stay with Manchester United but only if he is getting enough playing time.
Such statement and Messi’s intention to bring Di Maria back to La Liga has got United worried and they are hoping Di Maria could wrap up his Copa America campaign as early as possible and come back to England.
Argentina take on Colombia in the Quarter Finals of the Copa America later tonight where Di Maria would go against his former teammate Radamel Falcao.
