The majority of the punters in the Football Transfer Tavern have to agree – but there is some good news coming from Sky Sports.
According to the publication, it seems that the Red Devils have finally agreed a fee with Real Madrid for Angel Di Maria and it will certainly be a record breaker.
It will cost around £63.9 million for the club to bring Di Maria to Manchester and with the winger dead set on leaving Real Madrid, not to mention United crying out for a player of his quality, it seems that a move cannot come soon enough.
After their drab 1-1 draw against Sunderland yesterday, van Gaal was asked about any potential move and claimed: “The club has to announce it.
“When we are thinking it is the right time for a transfer, then we come to you and say ‘OK, we have that player or the other player’. But at this time we cannot say anything.”
Despite his words, it seems pretty certain that Di Maria is set to become a United player this week and that will certainly be a coup for the club.
