Manchester United fans have smiles on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Star claim the Red Devils are considering a £50 million bid for Angel Di Maria.
This is the very same Di Maria who had an outstanding season last term for Real Madrid yet was deemed ‘too expensive’ by David Luiz-buying Paris Saint-Germain, paving a clear path for the Red Devils to swoop for the Argentine winger.
We think that Di Maria would fit into the Premier League rather well and could even give Manchester United that little bit of creative spark that they are lacking on the wings at present.
Given Real Madrid are keen to sell the Argentine for the right money, upping their offer to £50 million is certainly something that we think could tempt the current champions of Europe into parting ways with one of their better players.
Our punters note that PSG have officially lost the plot and we know if we had had to pick one of David Luiz or Di Maria for £50 million, it would not be a choice!
If the Red Devils do manage to land Di Maria for £50 million, this will eclipse the club record £37 million fee they paid to Chelsea for Juan Mata’s services in January.
Manchester United fans. Do you think the addition of Di Maria could turn you into title contenders this season? Let us know your thoughts below.
