Manchester United fans are fuming here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Star claim they are set to miss out on Real Madrid star Angel Di Maria.
This is all because Paris Saint-Germain are willing to make a £47.5 million bid for the winger.
The Parisian giants are willing to blow Manchester United out of the water by offering a greater wage packet to Di Maria as well.
One of our punters notes over a pint that Arsenal are now out of the running for the player given they have netted Alexis Sanchez, and we have to agree meaning that Louis van Gaal and Manchester United are the ones we expect to make a serious bid for the Argentine.
United were willing to offer £38 million to Real Madrid for the former Benfica star, who is intent on leaving the Bernabeu this summer after feeling pushed aside once again.
However, as our landlord remarks, PSG have literally wiped the floor from under them with that bid.
Manchester United fans. Should van Gaal match PSG’s bid and really excite the Red Devils fans with this marquee signing? Let us know your thoughts below.
