Arsenal fans may be set to miss out on one of their top targets this summer according to Marca, who claim that Angel Di Maria is still wanted at Real Madrid.
The Argentine attacking midfielder has expressed a desire to leave the Champions League winners and is keen to move to a club who he feels will not only make him the main man but also appreciate him as well.
That is not something he feels is currently on the table at Real Madrid and given Los Blancos are chasing Colombian international star James Rodriguez, it looks set to only get worse in the coming months.
Arsenal and their manager Arsene Wenger are keen on Di Maria and would be willing to spend a significant portion of their transfer fee on the creative star.
However, Real Madrid want at least £50 million, and we are not convinced Wenger will shell out that much.
As one of our punters notes, Di Maria may be wanted by Ancelotti, but the Italian manager only has so much power at the Bernabeu and should the board want to get rid and cash in, that is exactly what will happen.
Arsenal fans. Do you think Wenger should offer £50 million for Di Maria and try to lure the Argentine to Arsenal? Let us know your thoughts below.
