Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking over to the bar and trying to hear what our landlord has to say as he divulges the latest gossip from the Daily Mirror – and it is all about Angel Di Maria.
There have been rumours circling that the United ace has been unhappy at the club and is looking to leave, but the winger has moved to dispel these and claimed: ‘I started off quite well but I think that made expectations then rise and everyone thought that I would just carry on in the same way, but football is like that, sometimes you have these ups and downs.
‘But I just have to keep working hard and focusing on what I want, which is to do as well as I possibly can.’
As one of our punters notes, given Di Maria has seen his home burgled and his team far from their best, we cannot blame him for a dip in form – but now that has to be rectified and we fully expect the winger to get back to his best.
Given Robin van Persie is facing an extended spell on the sidelines, we think it is the perfect time for the former Real Madrid player to show the form that earned him a move to Old Trafford in the first place – and made him the star of the Champions League final for the Spanish side.
Manchester United fans. Do you think Di Maria can rediscover his early season form or is this all you are going to get? Let us know your thoughts below.
