Metro have Manchester United fans looking devastated here in the Football Transfer Tavern as our landlord reports that the publication seem to think Angel Di Maria is desperate to leave the club.
The winger has seen his season stall somewhat and after various issues, both on and off the field, we think that the player deserves a little bit of leeway – but asking for a transfer after only one season in England is a little bit much.
Di Maria has reportedly asked his super agent Jorge Mendes to find him another club and our regulars make the point that there will be a host of clubs who will be keen on Di Maria, even with the price tag United will put on his head.
Considering he cost £59 million, we cannot see the Red Devils letting Di Maria leave for less than that – and Louis van Gaal may even try to make a profit.
Manchester United fans. Do you think that Van Gaal is the reason for the transfer request? Let us know your thoughts below.
