Manchester United fans are looking up with interest at The Independent‘s claim here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the publication seem to think that Barcelona have had a £48 million bid rejected for Angel Di Maria.
The Real Madrid winger ha asked to leave the La Liga side and it seems pretty clear that he will be finding another club before the transfer window closes and we had thought it would be Manchester United.
As one of our punters points out over his game of pool, Real Madrid are not exactly likely to sell a top player to Barcelona.
Given the rebuff handed out by Florentino Perez, not only will we be avoiding a Luis Figo type situation in the next Clasico but Manchester United and Louis van Gaal seem to be moving closer and closer to landing their man.
The Red Devils are now thought to be in advanced talks with the Argentine and Di Maria is already preparing for life in Manchester.
Manchester United fans. Will you be the ones to land Di Maria or will the mediocre transfer window carry on? Let us know your thoughts below.
