Punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are eager to catch up on the latest reports from AS this evening.
They’re eager to find out which La Liga star Manchester United are considering paying a whopping £45 million for.
The player in question is Angel Di Maria, with both United and Paris Saint-Germain willing to offer Real Madrid a massive chunk of money for the Argentine’s services.
The Champions League winners value Di Maria at around £50 million and are desperate to receive a large fee in order to bid for Monaco’s man of the moment James Rodriguez.
Los Blancos may be willing to accept slightly less than this figure with the promise of add-ons should the winger perform well.
Di Maria himself is willing to leave the Bernabeu and feels unwanted once again, paving the way for Louis van Gaal to make a move for the player he feels could add some zip and pace to his attack next season.
Of course as one of our punters notes over a pint, van Gaal will miss the chance to get a closer look at the Argentine with the attacking midfielder ruled out of the World Cup semi-final.
Manchester United fans. Would you spend £45 million on Di Maria or is the winger just too inconsistent and lightweight for the Premier League? Let us know your thoughts below.
