According to Goal’s report, Manchester United midfielder Angel Di Maria’s agent Jorge Mendes has travelled to France to dicscuss his client’s future with the Paris Saint-Germain officials

Mendes arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport on Tuesday and met with PSG officials as he looks to finalise Di Maria’s exit from Manchester United.

It is further reproted that Manchester United have also sent their representative to Paris. It was speculated earlier that the Premier League side will look forward to enforce an exchange deal with the Ligue 1 champions for the Argentine. They might want Edinson Cavani for Angel Di Maria. The Red Devils are short of strikers with Wayne Rooney the only quality option upfront.

Edinson Cavani for long has linked with a move to Premier League. He was not happy with his role at PSG and he might come to United if a deal is actually struck.

Angel Di Maria had joined Manchester United last season from Real Madrid for a British transfer record fee of £59.7million. After some success initially he succumbed to repeated injuries. He came back in the second half of the season but Louis van Gaal preferred Juan Mata, Marouanne Fellaini and Ander Herrera over the Argentine. This has triggered specualtions regarding his transfer. In his 20 league appearnces he provided 10 assists.

PSG manager Laurent Blanc had recently mentioned that he likes Angel Di Maria as a player. He admired the player and would like to see him in the squad. With Memphis Depay’s inclusion in Manchester United squad this season Di Maria’s starting XI spot is in jeopardy. 

It will interesting to see if PSG actually enforces a move for Di Maria and send Cavani in exchange to Manchester United.
