Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking aghast at the claim coming from Metro who note that Angel Di Maria only made the move from Real Madrid to Old Trafford for money.
According to the publication, the Argentine international has admitted that he would have gone to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the summer had they not encountered serious Financial Fair Play issues.
The same report also notes that Di Maria could consider a switch to the Parc Des Princes in the future, such was his desire to join Laurent Blanc’s side.
Our resident Red Devils supporters are fuming at these latest quotes from their star man in a period whereby United are reeling from a whole host of serious injury issues.
David De Gea and Daley Blind both got injured in the recent international break and the latest soundbites from Di Maria haven’t helped matters.
Di Maria claimed: “Playing in the French league would please a lot of players.
“Now I’m in the English league. But you never know, there is a lot of movements in football. You can never predict where you’re going to play.
“It could have been a good experience to go to Paris.
“I know I’m still young, perhaps I’ll go to PSG one day. I don’t know how it will all end.”
United fans. Do you think that Di Maria will be a long serving star at Old Trafford or is he only here for a couple of seasons? Let us know your thoughts below.
