There are a few interested faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern after The Independent claimed that Angel Di Maria was preparing to leave Real Madrid.
The former Benfica winger has been simply brilliant for the Champions League winners and now looks set to once again be undervalued by the club after Monaco’s James Rodriguez was lined up as a potential summer buy.
That has led Di Maria to admitting that his future may not necessarily be at Real Madrid – and Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City are on red alert.
After a somewhat lacklustre World Cup, Di Maria was asked about his future and claimed: “We do not know if I’ll stay in Madrid. I’m happy, but I’ll see what happens.”
According to our La Liga expert, Real Madrid are willing to accept offers for Di Maria if they are around the £50 million mark – and we certainly think that will rule Arsenal out of the race!
Manchester United are of course looking to rebuild and noisy neighbours Manchester City have a manager in Manuel Pellegrini who certainly has a couple of connections at Real Madrid should he wish to use them!
Mesut Ozil was the big name departure from Real Madrid last summer. Do you get the feeling Di Maria will be on the move this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
