One of our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern points to Metro and asks just when the Angel Di Maria saga is going to end.
After our conversations yesterday, even our landlord doesn’t have the answer!
We had already discussed the fact that the Real Madrid attacking midfielder is set to be offered a massive deal to join the Red Devils worth around £120,000 per week, and that is something that blows his wages at Real Madrid out of the water.
Not only that, but it seems that despite Di Maria returning for pre-season training, the Real Madrid powers that be are happy to see him leave.
Now as one of our punters notes, reports in Spain are suggesting that Di Maria is still wanted by Carlo Ancelotti but that may not be enough to keep him in Spain.
Various media outlets are now reporting that Paris Saint-Germain are backing out of a deal, leaving the path clear for United to land the former Benfica star.
The lure of an instant pay day from Manchester United may well be too much to resist for Real Madrid.
We think this could actually push them ahead of Paris Saint-Germain in the race for the winger with our regulars pointing out that it is not only Di Maria who has a say in his future.
Manchester United fans. Can you land Di Maria or will Carlo Ancelotti succeed in keeping him in Madrid? Let us know your thoughts below.
