According to latest reports, Manchester United are looking for a swap deal which includes Angel di Maria for Bayern Munich’s Mario Gotze. Both the players have been below par after their highly spoken transfers.

Mario Gotze failed to force him into first team squad even after two seasons with the German Champions. The 22-year old was unable to manage the form that he had with Dortmund under Jurgen Klopp prior to Champions League final 2013. The player could not settle at Allianz Arena and also did not fit well into Guardiola’s system.

Angel di Maria hit headlines after managing British record transfer fee, but life has gone miserable towards the mid season for the talented winger and is often found benched. The player have not managed to live up to the expectations of both club management and fans.

With Bayern Munich searching for quality wingers across Europe as they need to find a long term replacement for their aged wingers Robben and Ribery, Angel di Maria would fit into the Bayern’s playing style as their system is reliant on their star wingers.

Mario Gotze will also provide Manchester United much needed creativity in the final third. The young prodigy is one of the brightest stars for future and is already termed as “German Messi” by German fans. 

A swap deal would benefit both the clubs and the players and would ideally be the deal of the season.
