United and PSG agree Di Maria fee

Angel di Maria is due to undergo his medical with Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday, it has been claimed.


Spanish football expert Guillem Balague was one of the first ones to confirm the report.

“Wait and see”, Blanc said.

With Di Maria’s transfer all but sorted, Ed Woodward is set to turn his attentions to signing Pedro, with the club official set to meet with relevant Barcelona personnel in a bid to acquire the winger. The potential Rodriguez deal is expected to be worth £22 million.

Asked why Di Maria hadn’t joined the tour, he said: “I don’t want to answer that but you can keep asking”, Van Gaal was quoted saying by the Daily Mail.

Louis van Gaal says Manchester United are unlikely to be able to challenge for the Premier League title until they bring in a player with “speed and creativity”.

The manager tinkered with the shape of his starting XI throughout his debut season at the Old Trafford helm as United overcame a poor start to qualify for the Champions League following a one-year absence.

“Negotiations are ongoing, but as Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain are both big clubs, that can be hard”.

While Di Maria will probably never admit as much, his commitment to Manchester United was always fragile at best, as his believed the end of his Real Madrid career last summer would end with a move to PSG.

His £22m buy-out clause will not deter Louis van Gaal, who will be keen to fill a Di Maria shaped hole in the United lineup.

The Spain worldwide could provide more balance and discipline in Man United’s attack, meaning Van Gaal can ensure his side maintain their structure going forward and defensively too.

LVG told the reporters after United’s 2 – 0 defeat against PSG. “Maybe you know? I don’t know that either”, as reported by ESPN FC.


United moved quickly to beat PSG to the signature of Depay in April and on this evidence, it is easy to see why they were so keen on the Dutchman.
