Over the last few days reports surrounding Angel Di Maria and Manchester United have increased in intensity.
In the past 24 hours, some press outlets have claimed that United and the player have already agreed personal terms and all that was left to do was agree a fee with Real Madrid.
Now, he Spanish paper AS is claiming that Di Maria rejected Manchester United’s offer as he has his eyes set on a move to PSG in Ligue 1.
Real Madrid have not ruled out selling the player and would be open to letting him go as long as their valuation is met – something both Manchester United and PSG are said to be willing to do. The player, however, has only one goal in mind should he leave, according to the report in AS at least, and that is to go to France.
Seems like this transfer is not quite as close to happening as many in the UK would have you believe. It is being speculated that Champions League football is playing a part in Di Maria’s decision however given United’s pedigree in the tournament it is doubtful that the lack of European football at Old Trafford next season would be the only deciding factor.
Juventus are also said to be interested in the 26 year old.by
